Mali

Region: 

Mali is home to 17 million people, about half of whom are children under the age of 15. With low GDP growth and limited investments in health, nutrition, education, water and protection, children in Mali continue to face significant threats to their wellbeing. Almost no decline has been observed in neonatal mortality and maternal mortality in recent years. Maternal and childhood mortality remains high in Mali with an under 5-mortality rate of 115 per 1,000 live births and a maternal mortality rate of 550 per 100,000 live births in 2015. With low GDP growth and limited investments in health, nutrition, education, water and protection, children in Mali continue to face significant threats to their wellbeing. Almost no decline has been observed in neonatal mortality and maternal mortality in recent years. The prevalence of stunting (low height for age) among children under 5 is more than 28% and has changed little over the years. More than 1 million children are out of school and more than half of all girls are married before the age of 18. In addition to the lack of resources and access to care, the health challenges have been made worst after conflict broke out in the north, stalling progress that had been made before 2012.

In recognition of these health challenges, the TRAction Project is working on Integrated Community Case Management in Mali to improve access to basic health services and treatment of childhood illnesses.
