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.

“Like the health and growth of one child, Mali Health’s impact is iterative, extending beyond one person to so many more. I love supporting Mali Health then, now and forever – never let anyone suggest that small and thoughtful projects cannot grow up to change a world.”

– Helen Ryan, Mali Health Supporter
