Marie Stopes Burkina Faso

Our programme in Burkina Faso opened its doors in August 2009 and has since developed into one of the country’s most successful family planning and sexual health organisations.

Being one of the poorest nations in the world, and where five women die each day from pregnancy related complications, there is a great unmet need for reproductive health services.

Marie Stopes Burkina Faso is working continuously and tirelessly to increase access to services among poor and hard-to-reach populations in the country.

How we deliver our services in Burkina Faso

Our three clinics offer a comprehensive range of sexual and reproductive health services, from family planning methods to HIV prevention and treatment.

In 2013 Marie Stopes Burkina Faso launched its first youth centre, specifically to cater to the needs of the country’s young people, and to increase access to information and affordable sexual and reproductive health services.

Our mobile outreach teams bring dedicated providers to hard-to-reach and under-served urban and rural communities, offering services within public sector health facilities. The outreach teams offer long-acting and permanent methods to complement the range of short-term methods often available in public facilities.

Reaching the hard to reach

Marie Stopes Burkina Faso is using two different channels to reach women and families living in rural and hard-to-reach areas. Both rely on close working and relationships with communities. 

Firstly, our Marie Stopes Ladies and Men are embedded in communities and offer a range of family planning services and provide a continuum of care for our clients. Secondly, our community-based mobilisers work closely with public health workers, schools, women’s associations and taxi drivers to name just a few, to carry out promotional and educational activities to create awareness about local family planning services.

Marie Stopes Burkina Faso has, through its hard and devoted work, contributed to the decline of rates of unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions and ultimately maternal mortality rates.
