According to a 2012 report by Rwandan legislators, the government had accumulated over Rwf2.3 billion ($3.3 million) in arrears owed to district hospitals and over Rwf400 million to national referral hospitals and health centres, indicating that the scheme is not self-sufficient.
This has created concerns about the scheme’s financial sustainability.
