Burundi

As part of the Evidence to Action (E2A) Project, MSH works with public and private organizations in Burundi and supports a wide range of activities including FP services; health education; maternal, newborn, and child health care; and HIV prevention, care, and treatment. The project conducts re­search and disseminates findings from its various international programs to advance global learning on FP/RH service delivery. 

Through The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Serivces (SIAPS) Project, MSH continues to build upon the work carried out by Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) Project to ensure that pharmaceutical sector governance is strengthened, capacity for decision-making challenges in the pharmaceutical sector are addressed, and that pharmaceutical services are improved to achieve desired health outcomes. In Burundi, SIAPS focuses on efforts to address the above problem. The approach is multifold:

  • Strengthen the organizational and management Capacity of the PNILP to develop policies and strategies for malaria control in Burundi.
  • Strengthen the capacity of PNILP, Centrale d’Achat de Médicaments Essentiels du Burundi (CAMEBU, Burundi’s essential drug purchasing agency), and the Directorate of Pharmacies, Medicines and Laboratories (DPML) in the areas of malaria and pharmaceutical management.
  • Improve Patient Safety and Rational Use of Malaria Commodities.

The Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) provides a reliable, cost-effective, and secure supply of products for HIV/AIDS programs in PEPFAR-supported countries, including Burundi. SCMS works to maintain a global supply chain that ensures reliable supply of quality HIV/AIDS medicines for people living with HIV/AIDS. The project supports the central pharmacy (PSP) in procuring, importing, storing, and distributing, all PEPFAR-supported commodities for HIV/AIDS programs. SCMS has worked to develop and implement a system that provides timely information about inventory and consumption of commodities at PSP districts and sites. 

In Burundi, the Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Project is strengthening the capacity of the Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCM) to better execute its functions in compliance with the standards and regulations of the Global Fund. LMG is improving CCM governance and its operational processes to ensure a transparent, streamlined, and sustainable implementation of activities. LMG is also building the leadership and management capacity of the CCM to monitor and evaluate grant performance, harmonize activities with other key stakeholders, mobilize additional resources, and implement, monitor, and evaluate programs.
