Coffee and Community: Combining Agribusiness and Health in Rwanda
This issue of FOCUS highlights the successes and lessons learned from the USAID-supported Sustaining Partnerships to Enhance Rural Development (SPREAD) Project in Rwanda. In the most densely populated country in Africa, coffee farmers improved their livelihoods and the health of their families by combining community health education with agribusiness development by forming and strengthening cooperatives. Since 2006, this Population, Health and Environment project has increased farmer revenues and improved family health outcomes in the target communities.
