Every country in Africa has different requirements and recommendations regarding health and immunizations.
Visitors over one year of age must produce a valid International Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever. A Cholera vaccination certificate is not a condition of entry, however, Customs officials may require some proof of immunization, depending on where you are from, if that country was not affected by Cholera.
Malaria is a risk throughout Rwanda. The local strain is reported to be resistant to chloroquine and resistant to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine - consult your personal physician.
Food & water: Visitors should consume only their own supplies of bottled water and vitamins. Water used for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should first be boiled. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish, preferably served hot. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.
