iHRIS Manage Implementation Progress in Rwanda

Forward momentum of iHRIS Manage implementation has continued in Rwanda. Rwanda’s in-country HRIS Specialist, Solange Tuyisenge, was excited to report that all districts now have online access to iHRIS Manage. She noted that this development has not come without challenges, as the ICT infrastructure is not sufficient in many district hospitals. Some of these hospitals have irregular internet connectivity, which is problematic for routine system updates. However, the Ministry of Health is aware of these connectivity difficulties and is now taking steps to resolve the issue.

iHRIS Manage users at the district level are enthusiastic about the new system.  District users have reported using iHRIS Manage to do the following:


  • identify the exact number of staff in the district
  • run monthly salary reports
  • analyze staffing gaps
  • identify applicants that have illegally left positions at other health facilities
  • determine which staff have receive particular trainings (and ensure equity of opportunities to receive short course trainings for all staff)
