As of 25 March, there are two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Mali. There are limited resources available in Mali to prevent the spread of this outbreak, so we are doing all we can to support national response efforts and ensure that the communities we serve stay healthy. Please, if you can, we hope you will contribute, or buy a bar of soap, and together we will help make sure families and health centers have the essential resources they need, like soap, to stay safe. We need you.
Mali Health helps communities improve the health of mothers and children.
We have a vision for how communities can ensure access to high-quality healthcare within their local health system, and for how even the poorest communities in Mali can achieve health for all.
BUILDING A COMMUNITY HEALTH SYSTEM
Mali’s decentralized health system presents many challenges, and many opportunities. When we help communities manage their resources to improve the quality and availability of maternal and child healthcare in their health centers, the results are astounding. By supporting community members, we help the health system to function the way it was designed to – with full local ownership.

Mali Health believes in building on a community’s existing resources. We do not want to replace them, because we want to enhance them. Often, a community’s greatest resource is its residents – people deeply committed to improving life for their families and neighbors....
Compassion is a universal idea – but it’s been in the news a bit lately. The Dalai Lama is helping to open the conversation about its role in medicine. A donor recently gave $100 million to create an institute to study empathy and compassion to the University of...
