About the Organization

AHC was formed in 2016 as part of the long-term sustainability strategy that the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science developed with the Rwanda Defense Forces to support its participation in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) which funded the US Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP). This program is designed to help militaries across the globe to combat the spread of HIV and to ensure proper treatment interventions. In September of 2017, AHC became the lead agency in implementing US DOD/PEPFAR grant funded HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care, and Treatment in the Rwanda Defense Force. The program serves the military, their families, and communities around military health facilities throughout Rwanda. AHC’s vision is a world where health workforces are empowered to sustainably and equitably improve the health and welfare of their communities.
