We started working in Burkina Faso in 2002, with projects to improve sexual and reproductive health through the fight against sexually transmitted infections (HIV / AIDS) and the reduction of maternal and infant mortality in the health district of Bogodogo, Region Central. Since 2012, the work has been carried out in the Sahel region to reduce infant mortality linked to malnutrition by supporting the regional hospital and the Dori health district to improve the care of children with severe acute malnutrition. This intervention in nutrition was extended in 2016 to the South West region with activities in hospitals and community health centers.

We provide training in municipalities and management committees aimed at community health agents to improve their involvement in the health of their community.

From February to December of this year we worked in humanitarian action in partnership with the Belgian Red Cross to alleviate acute malnutrition in the health districts of Dori and Djibo (Sahel region), serving a direct population of 358,234 children under 5 years of age (51 % girls). The budget is 3,343,284 euros.

In partnership with Humanité et Inclusion, Veterinarians Without Borders Belgium and the Spanish Red Cross worked from June 2017 to February 2020 on a development cooperation project to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations in food and nutrition insecurity in the provinces of Yagha, Sahel region, for a population of 25,297 children between 0-5 years old. The budget is 693,476 euros.

Our objective is to improve the prevention, the quality of medical care, especially at the ambulatory level and in the hospital recovery centers, reinforcing the Burkinabés health system. We seek the right to sexual and reproductive health, especially in young people, with sexual education, improvement of health services, family planning, and the prevention of early pregnancies, sexual and sexist violence, early marriages, child and forced, and of female genital mutilation and excision.
