Rwanda Client Registry


Key Questions: How is a Client Registry used in Rwanda? Who does the Client Registry help? Which unique identifiers are included?

The MOH Client Registry is responsible for holding demographic information for all persons in Rwanda. This registry will also hold information on the families (chief and dependants) as well as social categories. This is important information for the public health insurance administration. 

Although specific to Rwanda, adaptations of this document may be useful when creating a client registry for one's own organization.
