We’re on the frontline of HIV support in Burundi, helping local communities respond to their country’s HIV epidemic.
There are 78,000 people in Burundi living with HIV, many of whom are part of marginalised communities such as sex workers and people who inject drugs. In adult women, the rate of infection is almost double that of men, at 1.4%.
We’re working here to support communities across Burundi take action against the HIV epidemic.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 4.8% of men who have sex with men are living with HIV.
- 10.2% of people who inject drugs are living with HIV.
- 21.3% of sex workers are living with HIV.
Our work with ABS gives us access to a national network of more than 342 different organisations that are tackling HIV.
More specifically, ABS provides financial support to 17 community-based organisations, along with training in how to deliver effective HIV programmes. Through its broader network, the team also looks for ways to strengthen the broader national response to HIV via community action.
And ABS is part of a wider regional programme to help 10-19 year olds who are either living with, or most affected by, HIV.
