U.S. Ambassador visits FHI 360 program in Burundi
The U.S. Ambassador to Burundi, Dawn M. Liberi, recently visited FHI 360’s Integrated Health Project in Burundi (IHPB) in Muyinga Province. Ambassador Liberi spent time with a health worker who provides community case management of malaria (CCMM) for children under 5, which includes diagnosing and treating malaria. IHPB supports community case management through trainings, supervision and equipment provision in three districts across Burundi.
It is very impressive to see the great work you are doing within your community,” Ambassador Liberi told the community health worker. “You are a leader and the CCMM services you provide for malaria prevention and treatment help many women and children under five years.”
IHPB is implemented by FHI 360 and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
