Description


This project is being implemented by the Croix-Rouge malienne (CRM) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) at national, regional and district levels. CRM and MoH teams will work to improve maternal and neonatal care and health practices at village level in six districts across the regions of Koulikoro and Sikasso reaching 1,261,400 women, children and men – thus significantly contributing to the objectives of the MoH’s MNCH and Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) strategies.

The partners will achieve this by harnessing the potential of communities and by extending the reach of the MoH through Community Health Workers to implement practical, proven and cost effective ICCM and MNCH interventions.

Furthermore, social mobilization will address social barriers, particularly gender barriers, to MNCH.

Finally, the initiative will support the primary and secondary health care centers (CSCOMs and CSREFs) to improve the quality of their MNCH services and support the health information system in the targeted districts.

The project will also be supported by SickKids Centre for Global Child Health (CGCH) contributing to strengthen performance management and accountability, including local data collection, operational research, monitoring and evaluation.

The project is funded by the Government of Canada and CRC with CAD 19.2M over 4 years (1 April 2016 – 31 March 2020).
