Narrative description of project:
hera provided to the Dutch Embassy in Burundi a market analysis of the supply of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) products and services in Burundi, and analysed the extent and effectiveness of consumer outreach. The goal was to identify opportunities to develop SRH products and services in the local private sector, for example investigating the possibilities of direct imports by local wholesalers or local manufacturing of SRH products.

The results of the market analysis provided key learning points for the Embassy’s implementing partners and informed the Embassy’s further decision making and programming in the area of SRHR. The study results also formed the basis for discussions with stakeholders in the Burundian government, as well as the health and SRHR sub-sector actors and international donors, creating demand and matching supply for SRH products and services and further developing a sustainable SRH supply chain.
