Rwanda Military Hospital to reduce medical travel


The article says it costs patients between US$8,000 and US$12,000 to seek treatment abroad.  The new facility, which is still being tested, will operate as a center for cancer treatment. However, the country still suffers limited number of Oncologists to perform the needed treatment. Available records from the Ministry of Health indicate that there are 3 - 5 Oncologists in the country.

Dr. Jose Bufill, a specialised Hematology Oncologist based in Indiana, United States, is expected in the country to partner with Rwanda Military Hospital to raise awareness and treatment of breast cancer.
