The 2022 health workforce study by the World Health Organization’s African Region gives a grim picture of General Paul Kagame’s Rwanda. The study shows the following dismal figures on Rwanda’s health workforce: 1) Physicians (generalists): 786; 2) Physicians (specialists): 567; 3) Nurses and Midwives: 10,758; 4) Dentists: 228; 5) Pharmacists and technicians: 167; 6) Laboratory personnel: 1,990; 7) Community health workers: 45,000); 8) Other health workers: 506. The total number of Rwanda’s health workforce is 59,996 in a population of 13.7 million. Shame on you, General Kagame, with your boasts about transforming Rwanda.
