Since the beginning of 2019, we have begun to put in place the tools and resources that will enable us to achieve the objectives of the 2019-2023 period as prescribed by the World Health Organization at the global and regional levels.The WHO Office in Burundi is therefore making every effort to contribute to the Director-General’s goal of the triple billion, while implementing initiatives that will align with second phase of the WHO Transformation Agenda in the Africa Region.

February will have seen some encouraging results as a result of strong collaboration between WHO-MSPLS-Partners.We can only be proud of being able to control the outbreak of cholera that was declared in December 2018 in Rumonge province, and a new outbreak appeared in the city of Bujumbura early in the year. this year. Thanks to the combined efforts of the intervention teams, no new cases have been reported since February 22, 2019.

We can not but rejoice at the satisfactory results that emerged from the work of the Review of the MSPLS half-yearly work plan for the period from July to December 2018. The colleagues and partners of the Ministry of Public Health and the Fight against AIDS have had to share their innumerable achievements, including the activities of the various central structures and autonomous institutions of the Ministry, including hospitals, on specific public health issues such as Ebola, and cholera, development of the action plan of the Consultation Framework Partners for Health and Development, etc. Communications on the cooperation priorities of the Ministry’s main technical and financial partners point to a promising future for the health sector in Burundi.

We continued our efforts in continuing the country’s preparedness to cope with Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). The Bureau and MSPLS partners continued to conduct simulation exercises, with the aim of testing and contributing to empowerment and capacity building at the CTE level by testing the infrastructure, interactions and complementarities between the different teams.

Lastly, February made us meet delighted Technical and Financial Partners and satisfied the work that WHO and its partners have done, especially in the context of preparing the country to face a possible EVD. The visit of the Gatumba port of entry by the United States Ambassador and the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations System in Burundi is further proof of the growing interest of the partners in the work that we are doing, and their laudable intentions towards the promotion of the health sector in Burundi.

All we have to do now is to encourage Burundi, its Government and in particular the Ministry of Public Health and the Fight against AIDS and its partners, for the immense work they are constantly doing, with a view to the building of a nation where every citizen really benefits from a level and health services of irreproachable quality.
