Mali Health Organizing Project

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: April 8, 2014, 4:47 PM

Description

Mission: Mali Health's mission is to reduce maternal and child mortality in resource-poor communities in West Africa. To achieve this, Mali Health implements replicable programs that improve access to quality primary care at low costs, while increasing the capacity of and participation in local health systems.

Vision: We envision a world where health systems can meet the basic needs of the poor and eliminate preventable death, effectively treat disease and enhance self-efficacy and dignity for mothers and children.

Values:

  • We work to overcome barriers in the workplace, in the field, and in the cultural and political landscapes, achieving success through unremitting dedication.
  • We invest in local resource development, particularly among our staff and field workers.
  • We hold ourselves accountable for measurable results, including financial performance.
  • We leverage innovation, addressing existing causes of poor health through new frameworks.
  • We empower the poor, particularly women, as a catalyst and complement for lasting change.
  • We concentrate on supporting marginalized populations, expanding the zones of social and financial inclusion.

Our major programs include:

  • Action for Health: families otherwise unable to access healthcare receive free comprehensive primary care for children in exchange for parent's participation in community service. Community Health Workers connect families to preventive and curative care, while training them as health activists.
  • Community Health Radio: Aired twice weekly by local announcers, Mali Health's radio show alternates between targeted health education sessions and open discussions on community specific governance and health topics. Listening groups, composed of local youth, function to translate shows into community actions.
  • Health Savings: Completing its pilot phase in 2013, Health Savings is Mali Health's newest program aimed at fostering independence and preventative care-seeking. Women's groups come together and deposit funds in group savings accounts. Interest-free loans are available from joint savings to cover health care expenses and women can also take out interest-bearing loans to support their enterprises.
  • Sikoro-Sourakabougou Clinic: Constructed by Mali Health in 2009, our public clinic serves as a community-managed medical center to provide basic primary care to hard-to-reach populations.

Profil de l'organisation:

Le Mali Health Organizing Project est un 501(c) 3 à but non lucratif, fondée en 2007, qui travaille à améliorer les soins de santé maternelle et infantile dans les zones à faibles ressources urbaines de Bamako, au Mali. Nous croyons que les résultats de santé durable misent sur ​​l'implication de toute la communauté et nous nous efforçons d'améliorer la santé par:

  • Favoriser l'agence des résidents et des structures communautaires à se mobiliser pour répondre aux besoins de santé communautaires
  • Promouvoir l'éducation sanitaire, la prévention et la recherche des soins précoces
  • Améliorer l'accès financier, géographique et culturelle aux soins de santé pour les familles pauvres.
