Association Burundaise des Consommateurs (ABUCO)

Leftover (often expired) medications can create problems for human health and cause environmental pollution when disposed of unsafely. ABUCO’s 2021 project aims to make consumers and communities more responsible for the management of leftover medicines. During Green Action Week, the communities will collect leftover and discarded medicines along rivers, in collaboration with the local authorities. ABUCO will further mobilise local communities through a radio campaign, press release and video. A workshop will enable community members to share testimonies and experiences, assess results and consolidate partnerships for future action.
