Commitment Maker


A member of the East African Community and a FP2020 commitment maker since 2014, Burundi views family planning through a holistic, integrated, and multi sectoral lens with its Integrated Population, Health and Environment Strategic Plan. To support this plan and sustainable progress, the country has created a National Office of the Population to support this multi-sectoral work and promote coordination between sectors, highlighting their belief that people, their health, and the environment are all interrelated and interdependent. This can be seen through Burundi’s focus on increasing quality family planning services at the community level, with 62.1% of health centers providing the full range of contraceptive methods in their last survey and their increased focus on integration of family planning services with HIV, immunizations, and postpartum services. Like many countries in the region, a lack of financing and, in particular, domestic financing for commodities and the need to increase the existing budget line, remains one of the biggest barriers to progress.

Core Indicator Estimates

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions. For a complete analysis of Burundi and these Core Indicators, click below.
