Where we work / Burkina Faso

 

Malaria Consortium established an office in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, in December 2014 as part of its ACCESS-SMC project. Malaria is highly seasonal in Burkina Faso, with an estimated 60 percent of malaria cases occurring between July and November. Seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) is one method that prevents malaria in children from 3 to 59 months (who are the most at risk of contracting the disease) during the rainy season. Through our SMC programme, Malaria Consortium continues to work with government and partners to protect children from malaria.

 


 
Our area of focus in Burkina Faso includes:
  • Delivering seasonal malaria chemoprevention to over one million children in 23 health districts, and cascading knowledge of SMC delivery through training of health workers
