The Countdown to 2030 collaboration in Burkina Faso includes the Institut Supérieur des Sciences de la Population (ISSP), AFRICSanté, the Ministry of Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Johns Hopkins University. It aims to strengthen country evidence and analytical capacity to inform national and subnational reviews of health progress and performance for women, children and adolescents and nutrition. The analysis plan is tailored to the needs of the government and developed in the context of the country National Program of Health Development (PNDS) 2011-2020 and World Bank Global Financing Facility (GFF) investment case in Burkina Faso.

Burkina Faso's Health Plan and GFF Investment Case

The National Program of Health Development, Plan National De Développement Sanitaire (PNDS) 2011-2020, was developed to help accelerate progress to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. However, the country is still characterized by poor population health and social, political, and economic challenges which strain the health system.

The GFF Investment Case is an initiative to improve population health and address health challenges and gaps in reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH&N) along with improving the civil registration and vital system in Burkina Faso. The investment case is fully integrated in the country National Program of Health Development (PNDS) 2011-2020.
