Approximately 95,000 people are living with HIV in Burkina Faso, and around 71,000 children have lost both parents to AIDS-related illness. There is a need to strengthen the national HIV response and mobilise communities to address the epidemic.

Our work in Burkina Faso is helping. In 2016, we worked with Initiative Privée et Communautaire de Lutte Contre le VIH/SIDA (IPC) to reach 71% of the population living with HIV in Burkina Faso. In the same year, almost 50,800 people received sexual health and HIV services from IPC.

Furthermore, IPC are a principal recipient of the Global Fund. Through this grant, the organisation is working to scale-up community interventions to address HIV and tuberculosis. As a result of their efforts, 30,887 people living with HIV and tuberculosis were provided with integrated services in 2016.
