    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began an ongoing collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Government (MoH) of Burkina Faso in 1991 to provide guidance for polio eradication. This collaboration has expanded to include other important health issues. CDC has most recently focused on strengthening the country’s public health system, introducing and evaluating new vaccines, and continuing to work toward polio eradication and measles elimination. While CDC does not maintain an office in Burkina Faso, two CDC staff are detailed to the World Health Organization (WHO) West Africa Inter-Country Support Team in Ouagadougou. CDC promotes healthier, safer lives in Burkina Faso through technical assistance and through collaboration with in-country partners including the U.S. Peace Corps, the University of Ouagadougou, and WHO.
