Part 1 of this narrative report tells the story of Partners in Health’s (PIH's) recent quality improvement work in rural Rwanda. Since Partners in Health’s founding over 25 years ago in rural Haiti, the organization has worked to alleviate the underlying social and economic conditions as well as the diseases that afflict the poor in developing settings. PIH’s quality improvement work similarly emphasizes substantial commitment to improving infrastructure, building capacity, and augmenting available resources with the belief that, in resource-poor settings, these components are necessary for both initiating and sustaining meaningful improvements in quality of care.

Though related from the perspective of Dr. Lee, the following narrative represents the concerted effort of many, including Dr. Raymond Dusabe, Nurse Philbert Kanama, Nurse Caste Habiyakare, Kirehe Program Manager Shema Jean René, the dedicated Rwandan staff of Kirehe Hospital, PIH co-founder Dr. Paul Farmer, Director of PIH Rwanda Dr. Michael Rich, PIH Rwanda Medical Director Dr. Henry Epino, PIH Medical Director Dr. Joia Mukherjee, Meera Kotagal, and many others.
