Late access to care is a leading driver of maternal, child, and newborn death globally. As the epicenter of the child mortality crisis, Mali has one of the world’s highest under-five mortality rates. As with most of the world, Mali's current health care delivery model is passive, with providers waiting for patients to come to them. Families often cannot access care for sick children; and the health system often fails to deliver evidence-based treatment in time to the children who do access care.
Muso collaborates with governments to design community-based health systems that deliver care with speed to all patients who need it, when they need it. Muso, in partnership with the Malian government, has developed a Proactive Care model focused on ultra-rapid, doorstep health care delivery to save lives: Community Health Workers (CHWs) working within strengthened public health care systems actively search for patients and connect them to life-saving services early, without point-of-care fees.
