Our Countries

The @whatwomenwanthc campaign is calling on young women and girls around the world to share what’s important to them when it comes to maternal and #reproductivehealth. Take the survey and ask the women and girls in your community to do the same: https://t.co/c55LT113iJ

We are excited to join the conversation on #WCD2018

Until #familyplanning is a universally available choice in all settings, this human right will not be fully realized.

At #UNGA, @UNFPA and partners are calling for the fulfillment of this unrealized right: https://t.co/pjB2z7Ilwr

The issue of #familyplanning is about women’s agency.

Even if a service is available in the community, it’s not effective if women cannot access it. #EWECisME @WorldBank

Are you optimistic about the future? @BillGates and @melindagates are. Read what they have to say and dig into the Goalkeepers Report to learn about the progress we’re making and the generation of leaders making it possible. #Goalkeepers18 https://t.co/7rXvZqPsf6

Expanding access to #contraception & #familyplanning programs is one of the most cost-effective ways to break the cycle of poverty." #FP2020

Burundi

The majority of people in Burundi, home to more than 10 million people, live in rural areas and face limited access to reproductive health care. The country’s decade-long civil war took a toll on women and families, during which time rape as a weapon of war was widespread. Today, rates of sexual violence and HIV rates in Burundi remain high, and cultural norms limit women’s access to sexual and reproductive health care.

In partnership with the Burundi Ministry of Health and local health providers, and with the support of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), EngenderHealth works to improve care for survivors of sexual violence. To address the root causes of gender-based violence, EngenderHealth leads workshops and trains facilitators to involve men as partners in women’s health. Our projects in the Kayanza and Muyinga provinces of Burundi work to ensure that the next generation of women can live free of sexual violence and that today’s survivors receive the high- quality reproductive health care they need to lead healthy lives.
