In Burundi, we're on the frontline of HIV support for local communities responding to their country’s epidemic.
There are 85,000 people in Burundi living with HIV, many of whom are part of marginalised communities such as sex workers and people who inject drugs. Women are disproportionately affected by HIV; around 46,000 adult women are living with HIV compared to 30,000 adult men.
We’re working here to support communities across Burundi take action against the HIV epidemic.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 10.2% of people who inject drugs are living with HIV.
- 4.8% of men who have sex with men are living with HIV.
- The criminalisation of same-sex acts could mean imprisonment of up to 14 years.
- 21.3% of sex workers are living with HIV.
