When Burkina Faso’s Ministry of Health asked for help responding to an outbreak of dengue fever, ALIMA and its partners, SOS Médecins Burkina and KEOOGO, began supporting the government-led response on November 18, in three hospitals in and around the capital, Ouagadougou, where the majority of cases were concentrated.
The Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA), in collaboration with SOS Médecins Burkina and Keoogo, began supporting the Ministry of Health’s response efforts on November 18th, as the burden of the disease remains high. ALIMA and its partners are now supporting the Yalgado Ouedraogo University Hospital in Ouagadougou where the most severe dengue cases are treated.
