The Association of Burundi Surgeon Association (ABUC) is based in Bujumbura where over 70% of the region’s doctors are concentrated.

It is an association of surgeons who strive for excellence in serving patients. The provision of healthcare is unevenly spread across the region and since 2007 it has been structured into health districts. This Surgical Association is responsible for furthering the education and professional development of its members.
