KIDS’ HEALTH CAN’T WAIT
For more than a decade, Muso has worked with the Malian Government to improve how healthcare is delivered, with the aim of reaching people within the first few hours of showing signs of illness. The communities where Muso is active have achieved and sustained the lowest documented rate of child mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. We are funding Muso to build a technical assistance team and to scale its reach beyond Mali.
Muso trains, coaches, and equips community health workers to proactively go into communities to search for sick people, treat patients at home or rapidly connect them with health centres if they require advanced care. All services are free of charge.
Community health workers provide patients with life-saving services such as pregnancy testing, family planning, screening newborns and women for danger signs, and treatment for children with malaria, diarrhoea, pneumonia, and malnutrition.
Muso aims to reach 450,000 people directly and 18 million through Malian Government implementation by 2022.
