    Hi 9281.,

    look at "Travelers Health / Area / Country" for measures, and contact your GP/... for the vaccinations (I think the measures would be heavy for be there ...)

    9281.joschka -

    Travel recommendation from the U.S. Dept. of State for U.S. citizens regarding health issues in Burundi are presented below with additional links.

    MEDICAL FACILITIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION: Medical facilities in Burundi generally do not meet Western standards of care. Travelers should carry an ample supply of properly-labeled prescription drugs and other medications with them, as certain medications and prescription drugs are unavailable or in short supply. Sterility of equipment is questionable, and treatment is unreliable. Ambulance assistance is non-existent. Hospital care in Burundi should be considered in only the most serious cases and when no reasonable alternatives are available.
    Malaria prophylaxis is recommended for travel to all parts of Burundi.
    Information on vaccinations and other health precautions, such as safe food and water precautions and insect bite protection, may be obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionís hotline for international travelers at 1-877-FYI-TRIP (1-877-394-8747) or via the CDCís web site at For information about outbreaks of infectious diseases abroad consult the World Health Organizationís (WHO) web site at Further health information for travelers is available at
