We’re on the frontline of HIV support in Burundi, helping local communities respond to their country’s HIV epidemic.
There are 82,000 people in Burundi living with HIV, many of whom are part of marginalised communities such as sex workers and people who inject drugs. IIn adult women, the rate of infection is a third more than of men, at 54% compared with 33%.
We’re working here to support communities across Burundi take action against the HIV epidemic.
