Burundi

PSI Burundi

Founded in 1990, PSI Burundi is a fully incorporated member of the PSI global network. PSI’s operations in Burundi closed from 1996 to 2001 due to civil war, and in its place a local affiliate, Population, Health and Information, was formed to continue the work PSI Burundi began, marketing condoms and sensitizing Burundians to care and prevention for HIV/AIDS. In 2002, PSI Burundi recommenced operations and integrated the work of its local affiliate into its programming, adding programs for malaria prevention.
