Over 90% of the deaths of children in Mali can be prevented –
but 1 in 10 children will not reach age 5.

The survival of newborns and children is still one of the greatest challenges that Mali faces. Despite improvements over the past three decades – child mortality has been more than cut in half – the number of children dying remains unacceptably high.

But there is good news. We can prevent most of these deaths, and we’re working hard to help communities with very little resources to implement proven solutions. This is a problem that mothers, families and community health workers can solve today – they just need a bit of help.

Read more about how our community health workers have eliminated child mortality among the children in their care.

The deadliest diseases for children we serve are:

malaria, diarrheal diseases, malnutrition and respiratory infections

1 in 10

children will not reach age 5, one of the highest under-5 mortality rates in the world

1 in 28

newborns will not reach age 1, the 9th highest rate in the world
