Some Burkina Faso Facts

Burkina Faso, a landlocked nation in western Africa, is considered to be one of the poorest nations in the world. Because of its high population density and limited natural resources, economic prospects are inadequate for most of its citizens.

  • More than 70 percent of the population lives on less than U.S.$2 per day.
  • The average life expectancy is not much more than 50 years.
  • Common health problems include waterborne diseases: diarrhea, hepatitis A and typhoid fever.
  • The global food crisis is causing widespread malnutrition.
