Depuis 2015, le pays est confronté à une épidémie de malaria, avec près de 17,8 millions de cas et plus de 8 300 décès recensés sur près de trois ans. En 2016, le seuil épidémique a été dépassé et le nombre de provinces touchées a continué d'augmenter. En conséquent, le Gouvernement du Burundi a déclaré l'épidémie de malaria en mars 2017 et a élaboré un plan de riposte, en collaboration avec les partenaires du secteur de la santé. Le plan nécessite 41,7 millions de dollars et est actuellement financé à hauteur de 33,6 millions de dollars.
