Rwanda, like many countries in the African region has made changes, especially in fighting communicable and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
However, Rwanda being among the low- income countries, NCDs now make up 25 percent of the disease burden, which are usually caused by infections, malnutrition, and conditions associated with poverty.

Despite limited resources, BFG has full commitment in responding to all emerging infectious disease. However, Combating infectious disease is challenging even when effective medicines are cheaply available. Diseases like Tuberculosis, malaria and HIV continue to destroy families and individuals in Rwanda and the region. As a partnership with the Governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, BFG is accelerating the end of AIDS, TB and malaria as epidemics in Rwanda and in the region.
HIV and AIDS are in retreat. BFG intervenes in different aspects of interventions against HIV/AIDS such as voluntary HIV test campaign, increase in number of people accessing HIV treatment, behavior change communications, condoms distribution, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission, widespread circumcision campaigns, and other preventive measures
The decline in number of new HIV infections is not only the result of increased prevention; it also correlates with an increase in the number of people accessing HIV treatment.
Science has shown that putting an HIV-positive person on treatment reduces their chances of transmitting the virus by as much as 90 percent. BFG and its partners in Rwanda and around the world have worked to ensure that as many people as possible have access to treatment.
BFG advocates for persons living with HIV/AIDS, to fight against stigma, discrimination and other barriers. We strongly support and encourage the anti discrimination laws and other measures that explicitly cover discrimination on the basis of HIV/AIDS.
