1 in 5 children die in Mali of preventable and treatable illnesses. People in slums do not seek health care because they cannot afford it. However, they are willing to invest time and labor to benefit their community. Action for Health gives parents the opportunity to exchange community service for free primary health care for their children.
Community health workers provide in-home health education and transport sick children to a local clinic for free primary health care. In exchange, families participate in public service, like trash clean up days and health festivals.
Action For Health provides a replicable model for community health, and we plan to share our experience with partners across West Africa. We will double enrollment in our program in Mali each year until 2015, scaling to reach 12,800 children.
