The university launched in Rwanda in September 2015 with its flagship degree program: The Master of Science in Global Health Delivery. Through an academic experience uniquely rooted in the values of equity, students are empowered to both ease suffering at the bedside and drive transformational, systemic changes to the health system.

UGHE is an initiative of Partners in Health (PIH), an internationally recognized non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care.
