1 REPUBLIC OF RWANDA MINISTRY OF HEALTH POBOX 84 KIGALI CUSTOMER CARE NORMS IN RW ANDA OVERVIEW The ministry of Health is committed to improve its customer services and appreciates any comment from clients; either complimentary or critical that will contribute to improving the quality of services. We strongly believe that our health facilities exist to serve our customers, and should therefore be customer focused, striving to meet customer needs and exceed customer expectation in provision of care. Customer Care therefore relates to "Services offered to every patient pre.\ enting to a health facili(i' regardless of the nature of their complaint or disease". We aim to ensure that every client of the health services is satisfied with the way in which they are received and attended to in the process of care. Our strategies are: ~. o To improve the quality of care at the facility level o To reduce waiting times in the process of care - o To improve client confidence in the health care system

2 2 o To improve the diagnosis and the treatment for a better outcome and a cost effecti veness o To emphasize the importance of having a positive attitude towards our customers and treat them with dignity. o To improve client adherence to the health care to be provided o To improve responsiveness of all the health system We will achieve this through a collaboration approach with our partners, patients and personnel; and their commitment to the set standards.
