Mali Health improves maternal and child health by supporting women, communities, and the community health system to develop local solutions that ensure every mother and child has access to quality primary care.

We aim to end preventable maternal and child mortality by helping communities build participatory, community-led, and equitable health systems that meet the needs of the most vulnerable members of their community.

   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.
