Burkina Faso

13/45 provinces

The Alliance’s Linking Organisation in Burkina Faso, IPC, works with community based organisations and the government to widen access to high quality HIV services.

Burkina Faso has a generalised HIV/AIDS epidemic, with a national adult prevalence rate estimated at 1.2%. Approximately 140,000 children have lost at least one parent due to AIDS. The national response is still limited as well as the civil society contribution.

IPC aims to strengthen civil society in order to address the gaps in the national HIV response.  IPC has provided support to more than 500 community projects working on AIDS issues since 1995, and it has received project funding from a range of donors.

IPC implements programmes aimed at: prevention (mostly with young people); providing care and support to people living with HIV; scaling up community support to orphans and vulnerable children; and improving access and adherence to treatment.

The organisation also provides financial support to CBOs and NGOs working at community level.

IPC is a Principal Recipient of the Global Fund Round 10. The grant focuses on:

  • Universal Access through securing antiretroviral treatment and strengthening PMTCT;
  • Strengthening HIV prevention for most at risk populations (Health Systems Strengthening is cross-cutting in all areas).

IPC also:

  • Advocates at a national level for the integration of sexual and reproductive health and HIV programming.  Highlighting gender issues has been an important part of this work, and IPC has drawn attention to the importance of working with women and the value of male involvement in PMTCT programmes.
  • Hosts the Alliance Regional Technical Support Hub for West and North Africa. Find out more here.
