Summary

Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in Africa, ranks 182 out of 189 countries in the human development index. Additionally, it ranks below average compared to countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Action10 is now aiming to raise funds to provide lab equipment to the laboratories in Burkina Faso that currently experience a lack of resources. This will enable the laboratory to bring the research, on water quality among other things, forward and improve the standard of living.

Challenge

More than 80% of the population lives in multidimensional poverty, caused by low income, lack of healthcare and limited access to education. The laboratories have a critical role in providing research data that can be used to improve the standard of living of the population. However, 80% of the laboratories do not have the basic requirements for adequate functioning. To improve the quality of laboratories and accreditation of laboratories to the standards, there is a need for lab equipment.

Solution

Action10 and Human Rights & Science are partnering up, aiming to raise funds to provide critical lab equipment that will be used in the research and accreditation process. The laboratory is provided with education and soft loans to be able to finance and scale the operations, to eventually become self-sustaining. This will in turn increase the research quality and its competitiveness, enhancing knowledge and preventing diseases caused by, for example, poor water quality.

Long-Term Impact

By having more resources in the laboratories, access to functioning advanced scientific equipment and advanced analyses, accreditation, the laboratory provide more credible source of research. In the long-term, this will support in the development of the coutry as well as the knowledge around, among other things, water quality.
