DESCRIPTION: The Access Project aims to improve the health of people living in poverty, particularly in Rwanda, by applying business and management skills to public health systems to increase access to life-saving drugs and critical health services. The project equips these facilities and their staff to provide sustainable, high-quality health care for the thousands living in their vicinities.

OUTCOMES: 2002-2011: The Access Project provided targeted technical support to countries receiving money from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, including Rwanda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, and others. In addition to the Glaser Progress Foundation, Access Project supporters include the MAC AIDS Fund, Pfizer, MAIA Foundation, GE Foundation, Global Health Corps, Rwanda Works, U.S. Peace Corps, and others.
