HIV and AIDS in Burundi – Facing the challengest
IPU's Advisory Group on HIV/AIDS-MNCH undertook a field mission to Burundi in November 2013. The mission offered a series of recommendations on how to boost the country's fight against HIV and AIDS through parliamentary action. These included strengthening efforts on gender-sensitive policies and activity, reaching poor and marginalized people, caring for children orphaned by AIDS and enhancing coordination between key bodies and MPs. This report summarizes those recommendations and the main challenges faced by Burundi to tackle the epidemic.
