A small country with a big problem


Tuberculosis prevalence in Djibouti is proportionally among the highest in the world, with more than 200 people infected each week.

In collaboration with the Djibouti Ministry of Health and other local partners, BE Health successfully introduced its peer health education programme in September 2014, starting by holding information sessions for the Djibouti Palace Kempinski’s 350 employees and trained the selected employees to become peer health educator.

In 2017, the “Société de Gestion du Terminal à Conteneurs de Doraleh” fully joined the programme. In total, BE Health counts today 32 trained Peer Health Educators conducting prevention activities at their workplace and local communities. Until December 2017, they held 240 health prevention sessions on their own to share their knowledge on tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS and reached more than 6000 people in their local community.

Partners of BE Health in Djibouti

BE Health partners closely with Djibouti’s National Programme for the Fight against TB and its Programme for the Fight against STD/HIV/AIDS, as well as with the TB and HIV/AIDS Hospital Dr Chakib Saad in Djibouti.

These partners ensure peer health educators’ knowledge about tuberculosis and HIV. BE’s peer health educators also closely collaborate with the medical staff of Hospital Dr Chakib Saad to encourage TB patients to keep up with or resume their medication in case of withdrawal.
