Some project activities include : (i) completing the construction of targeted district health centres and community health centres, in southern Mali, with a specific focus on Kayes region; (ii) completing the rehabilitation of targeted district health centres and community health centres, in southern Mali, particularly in Kayes region; and (iii) supplying medical equipment (such as ambulances, ultrasound equipment, child delivery tables, solar vaccine refrigerators, stethoscopes, and thermometers) to targeted district health centres and to over one hundred community health centres in southern Mali, especially in Kayes region. These activities aim to ensure that targeted district and community health centres are able to provide essential health services, especially for mothers and children.
