Burkina Faso

Malaria remains a major public health issue in Burkina Faso and is endemic throughout the country. Eighty percent of the estimated 19 million residents of Burkina Faso live in rural areas, where they are at greater risk for poverty and poorer health than their urban counterparts. In 2014, the proportion of children infected with malaria parasites in rural areas was three times that of children living urban areas. Malaria prevention and control activities are guided by a national malaria control strategy, which supports the long-term vision of eliminating malaria in Burkina Faso by 2030. The strategy includes support for vector control, seasonal malaria chemoprevention for children under five years of age, intermittent preventive treatment for pregnant women, case management, and behavior change communication.

Each Malaria Operational Plan has been endorsed by the U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator and reflects collaborative discussions with the national malaria control programs and partners in country. Changes to these plans are reflected in revised postings.
