Burundi Humanitarian Emergency

A woman and her two small children flee into Tanzania by boat.

Burundi, one of Africa’s most densely populated countries, continues to face political instability and violence, high levels of poverty and rising food insecurity. Recurrent and devastating natural disasters drive population displacement and add to pre-existing humanitarian needs. UNFPA leads the gender-based violence sub-cluster in Burundi and supports existing health structures with provision of sexual and reproductive health services, including maternal and newborn health care and family planning. Meeting the SRH needs of adolescents and young people constitutes another priority for UNFPA in Burundi.
