Since 2015 the country has faced an outbreak of malaria, with nearly 17.8 million cases and over 8,300 deaths reported over nearly three years. By 2016, the epidemic threshold had been surpassed, and the number of affected provinces continued to increase. As a result, the Government of Burundi declared the malaria epidemic in March 2017 and developed an emergency response plan, in collaboration with health sector partners. The plan requires US$ 41.7 million, and it is currently funded at US$ 33,6 million.
