Burkina Faso

Having first worked there in 1995, MSF closed its projects in Burkina Faso in 2015. We returned in October 2017 to support the Ministry of Health during a dengue epidemic.

MSF teams supported four health centres and the infectious diseases department at Ouagadougou’s university hospital during the dengue epidemic that was declared in the central region of Burkina Faso on 28 September 2017.

We visited other health structures and worked with Burkinabe medical personnel to improve detection and treatment, and monitor how the epidemic was progressing.

We also organised community awareness-raising activities to encourage people to seek medical care if they showed symptoms of dengue, and to explain the importance of vector control in their homes.
