During COVID-19 and ongoing political transitions in Mali, our work continues. These are new challenges, but we have been through similar obstacles before. We will stand with the communities we serve to get through them again.
Your support makes that possible. 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 to stay healthy, always.
Mali Health helps communities improve the health of mothers and children.
We have a vision for how all communities can ensure access to quality healthcare in 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 community participation and local ownership.
