Overview

Burkina Faso has made great progress in the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Sixty percent of people living with HIV in the country are on antiretroviral therapy. Eighty-nine percent of HIV-positive pregnant women receive treatment to prevent transmission of the virus to their unborn children and more than 90 percent of the population at risk of malaria has access to mosquito nets. The country has successfully implemented a policy of free access to health care for children under 5 and pregnant women to protect the most vulnerable populations.

Despite these achievements, Burkina Faso faces a considerable burden of malaria, TB and HIV. It has one of the highest malaria burdens in West Africa. The disease is the second-leading cause of death in the country after lower respiratory infection. HIV prevalence remains high among key populations, and TB and multidrug-resistant TB are persistent challenges.
