Kigutu Hospital and Women’s Health PAVILION

Today, 11 years after Village Health Works transformed the mountain village of Kigutu, Burundi into a fulcrum of quality, community-driven health care and education, we are in the second half of a $20 million campaign to build  the Kigutu Hospital and Women’s Health Pavilion. This 85,000 square foot facility will be a state-of-the-art, 150-bed teaching hospital designed to meet the health needs of the entire community, particularly women and children, thereby improving the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of Burundians.



Village Health Works is located in the rural area of Kigutu, 60 miles southwest of the capital city of Bujumbura, and serves a population of approximately 200,000. Our campus is nestled among lush mountains and overlooks Lake Tanganyika, one of the oldest and largest lakes in the world. We strive to provide Burundians with a place of calm and healing in a country that has endured many years of turmoil.
