Anatole Manzi

Health | Rwanda

2020 New Voices Fellow


Anatole grew up in the hills of rural Rwanda, ensuring the family livestock stayed out of trouble. “My sense of responsibility comes from being a cow-herd”, Anatole says with a laugh. Following the 1994 Rwanda Genocide, Anatole’s sense of responsibility led him to a career in medicine, initially as a nurse and later as a clinical psychologist and public health expert. He designed Rwanda’s Mentorship, Enhanced Supervision for Healthcare and Quality Improvement (MESH-QI) program, which was credited with helping the country to make huge leaps in the quality of medical service delivery and is now being implemented in countries ranging from Haiti to Liberia. He is also the co-founder of Move Up Global, Inc., a nonprofit that strives to improve access to health and education in remote and resource-constrained communities.
