Access to healthcare in Burundi
Improved access to health care for women and children, improved quality of care of which Mental Health and Psychosocial care are part is where we are going to work on in the next 3 years. We get supported by the delegation of the European Union in Burundi.
We are the lead in a program together with GVC (Italy), medica mondiale (Germany) and Pathfinder (USA) as partners in the provinces of Cibitoke, Kayanza and Ngozi. There is a population of around 2.4 million people which is close to 3 timesthe citizens of Amsterdam. Half of them are younger than 24 years.
