The coordinator of mental health for the Rwandan Ministry of Health, Yvonne Kayiteshonga, and Brother Charles Nkubili, director
of Rwanda's only neuropsychiatric hospital, Ndera, were especially interested in the topic. Moreover, Ruben Sahabo, M.D.,
head of ICAP-Rwanda, was enthusiastic about expanding HIV care in Rwanda, Collins reported. "So the stage was set for a collaboration
between these various people and myself," she told Psychiatric News. "We wanted to provide greater access to combined mental health and HIV services for Rwandans with mental disorders and greater
access to mental health services for Rwandans with HIV."
