Programs

We work outside the capital, Bamako, in a peri-urban community of 80-100,000. We provide free health care and community health worker services targeting the poorest and most vulnerable under 5 and pregnant women through our Action for Health initiative. We mobilize the community and provide local technical assistance to help strengthen the capacity from within through Action Training. We're currently also operating a nationwide radio show and provide support to a clinic we build in 2009, now integrated into the national system through management support and medical training.
