Burundi Humanitarian Emergency

A woman and her two small children flee into Tanzania by boat.
UNFPA Tanzania/Sawiche Wamunza

Burundi is among Africa’s most densely populated countries and faces cyclic conflicts, political instability and violence. Security incidents, continuing political tensions, and a stalled peace process, coupled with rising food insecurity, are driving ongoing population displacement and refugee outflow and have led to a deterioration of the humanitarian situation. UNFPA is leading the gender-based violence sub-cluster in Burundi and supports existing health structures that provide sexual and reproductive health services, including maternal and newborn healthcare and family planning services.
