Association Burundaise des Consommateurs (ABUCO)

Many household medicines are not disposed of properly in Burundi and are often found in rivers. ABUCO encourages consumers and communities to be more responsible in the management of the remains of household medicines. An education effort will be made by community members who will lead actions and share experiences and testimonies. Leftover medicines will also be disposed of properly through a collection initiative that will gather leftover medicines from households and along rivers. The experience will be replicated in other cities.
