GIS usage has once again been recognized as something needed for the future of our country’s health. Rwanda recently recognized how the digital mapping can be used to help their country best utilize their limited resources. Rwanda intends to use GIS for such purposes as to find health service locations, find electricity supplies and drinking water, as well as to digitize roads, power lines and buildings. Rwanda especially wants to record how many cases of illnesses such as malaria have occurred in different parts of the country.
