Challenge

With a life expectancy of 48 years and a 19% infant mortality rate, health is one of Mali’s greatest concerns. Rural villagers lack the infrastructure and training to deal with the devastating effects of malaria, water-born diseases and other basic health concerns. Relief efforts alone will not address the long-term effects of this lack of training and infrastructure. Villagers need supplies AND training in order to face their health needs.

Solution

The Alliance provides mosquito nets, vaccinations and medicines to address the immediate needs of villagers, but continues to the sustainability level with training sessions for hundreds of village health workers who facilitate long-term change.

Long-Term Impact

By training village health workers and health councils, the Alliance is building capacity in villagers to be able to face their future health concerns without outside intervention.
