As a Dutch knowledge driven ngo, we work on the sustainable (re)construction of health care in areas disrupted by war or disaster. Also in Burundi we work with ‘evidence-based’ interventions on accessible health care. After all, reconstruction starts with health.
As a result of its turbulent history, Burundi is still one of the ten poorest countries in the world: 68% of the population lives on less than one dollar a day and life expectancy does not exceed 49 years. With external aid and support and despite the incidents, Burundian people and institutions have been working on rebuilding the country for a long time. With its own field office Health Works has been actively working on (health) care for internally displaced persons and psychosocial support to the population since 2000.
