PSI Burundi blends market development and behavior strange strategies to support Burundian people to make, and own, their health choices, particularly across the fields of sexual and reproductive health, malaria and HIV. By working alongside the public and private sector, the Government of Burundi and market actors, PSI Burundi paves pathways to quality, affordable consumer-powered care.

Founded in 1990, PSI Burundi is a member of PSI’s global network. PSI’s work in Burundi closed from 1996-2001 due to conflict in the country, with operations resuming in 2002. With 100+ staff, PSI Burundi is headquartered in Bujumbura, with an office in Gitega, Burundi’s political capital.
