Mali Health improves maternal and child health in peri-urban communities
in Bamako, Mali. We help mothers and children access high-quality primary
care while working with communities and the health system to improve the way
that care is delivered at the community level.
Our major programs include:
Quality Improvement: In close collaboration with community stakeholders, Mali Health aims to improve the quality, capacity, and accessibility of care at local health clinics. By pursuing small, but achievable improvements every day, we will improve the range and quality of care available to community members while lowering prices to encourage individuals to seek care at the first sign of illness.
Action for Health: A team of highly trained Community Health Workers conduct free, in-home visits with poor families to monitor the health, growth, and development of young children and pregnant women. The CHWs teach families how to prevent common illnesses and can connect families with local clinics when more advanced care is necessary.
Health Savings: Groups of women come together weekly to learn about important health and financial topics. These women pool their small savings into a collective account, from which group members are eligible to withdraw no-interest loans to cover their family's unexpected health expenses, or interest-bearing loans to pursue income-generating activities. It is our goal to foster women's independence and social position within the family, as well as helping to boost and stabilize families' incomes.
