In Burkina Faso, we’re working on HIV prevention, treatment and care, supporting communities to respond to the HIV epidemic.
Around 100,000 people are living with HIV in Burkina Faso, and thousands of children have been orphaned by AIDS. The main issue here is a need to strengthen the national HIV response and to help communities be better prepared to cope with the epidemic.
Our work here is focused on helping community organisations develop their skills so that they can provide more comprehensive services to the people who need them most.

INITIATIVE PRIVÉE ET COMMUNAUTAIRE DE LUTTE CONTRE LE VIH/SIDA (IPC)
We work with IPC, helping them provide funding and technical support to another 113 community-based organisations.
Our collective efforts are working. In 2018, IPC reached an estimated 90% of sex workers, and 95% of men who have sex with men (MSM) in Burkina Faso.
IPC is also working with our partner, ANCS, in Senegal in a broader regional harm reduction programme that is working to improve human rights and access to both HIV and tuberculosis prevention and treatment for people who use drugs.
We support IPC to improve their partnership with their donors by strengthening their organisational systems such as governance, management and onward granting with other partners.
OUR IMPACT IN BURKINA FASO
In 2019, IPC reached:
- Over 40,000 people with HIV prevention activities, including over 27,000 sex workers.
- More than 28,000 marginalised people with an HIV test and ensured they know their results.
