Publication: Burkina Faso : A Community-Driven Approach to HIV/AIDS
Burkina Faso has the second highest HIV/AIDS infection rates in West Africa, with an overall HIV prevalence rate of around 7.2 percent. A large number of development agencies are active in the fight against HIV/AIDS. An innovative community driven scheme to the epidemic was piloted under a recently completed Bank project and is now being replicated under a follow up HIV/AIDS Disaster Response Project. This brief describes the design of this pilot scheme both in terms of process and content; presents preliminary results; and identifies key lessons and future challenges.
