The Government of Rwanda, through the Ministry of Health, launched the Community-Based Environmental Health Promotion Programme (CBEHPP) on 17th December 2009. The purpose of this programme is to significantly reduce, by 2012, the debilitating national disease burden that currently exists and, in so doing, will contribute significantly to poverty reduction outcomes. CBEHPP will strengthen the capacity of all 45,000 Community Health Workers (CHWs)
who are located throughout 15,000 villages, through the adoption of the holistic Community Hygiene Club (CHC) methodology as a means to rapidly achieve hygiene behaviour change that is both sustainable and cost effective.
CBEHPP is an programme to reach all communities and empower them to identify their personal and domestic hygiene and environmental health related problems (including safe drinking water and improved sanitation) and thereafter to actively participate in the process of solving them. CBEHPP is embedded in the Health Sector Strategic Plan (2009-2012) of the Ministry of Health.
