Muso works to create a cure for delay because no one should die waiting for health care.
STARTED IN MALI.
More than a decade ago, a small group of Malians and Americans came together to address the injustices of health and poverty they witnessed around them.
Our founders knew that the majority of deaths in the world’s poorest communities are due to curable diseases not treated in time. In the shadow of Mali’s capital, they witnessed neighbors struggle and often fail to access a health care system designed to exclude them, simply because they were poor. Patients got care too late, or not at all. Muso was born from the question: what would happen if we designed a different kind of health care? What if we could create a health system that functioned alongside patients, that reached and treated every patient early, in the first moments of their illness?
To end the child and maternal mortality crises and deliver universal health coverage at scale, Muso collaborates with policymakers and implementers to design, test, and scale evidence-based health systems that deliver care with speed: to all patients who need it, when they need it.
Muso means woman in Bambara, a lingua franca of Mali.
WOMEN LEAD AT THE FRONT LINES OF OUR COMMUNITY-LED PROACTIVE CARE MODEL, AND REPRESENT NEARLY 80% OF OUR TEAM.
