About Muso 

Muso believes no one should die waiting for health care. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster, within hours of the moment they become sick. To do this, we partner with communities facing extreme poverty. Muso has spent more than a decade creating and improving our Proactive Care model, preparing it to serve the global effort for universal health care. We have documented rapid health improvements across the populations we serve: a 2018 study found that communities we reach in Mali, which previously saw some of the world’s highest child mortality rates, sustained child mortality rates lower than any country in sub-Saharan Africa for five years, and ultimately reached a rate on par with that of the United States. Patient access to care increased tenfold. Muso now serves the governments of Mali and Côte d’Ivoire in their efforts to translate the results of this research into national policy and practice. 

We provide proactive health care to 370,000 patients in peri-urban and rural areas of Mali and, in 2022, we are expanding our direct service to several districts in Côte d'Ivoire to eventually reach an additional 247,000 patients. Muso's team provides technical assistance that helps several governments set up their national community health and primary care systems, in order to pursue universal early access to care, maternal health and child survival. We integrate rigorous academic research and strategic advocacy to identify and share strategies that can accelerate global efforts for child survival, maternal health and universal health care. Given the transformations in health care access and survival Muso has documented, over the next five years our direct service, research, and advocacy will work to advance a new model of care for community health systems.
