Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health

Burkina Faso

Commitment

Commitment - Every Woman Every Child

Burkina Faso has met the 15% target for health spending, and commits to maintain spending at this level.

Burkina Faso will also develop and implement a plan for human resources for health and construct a new public and private school for midwives by 2015.

This is in addition to other initiatives being pursued which will also impact on women’s and children’s health, including free schooling for all primary school girls by 2015, and measures to enforce the laws against early and forced marriage, and female genital mutilation.
