Muso is a global health organization committed to universal health care. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster. To make this happen, we’ve devoted the past decade designing, building, testing, and improving on our proactive healthcare model. Communities Muso serves have achieved child mortality rates lower than any country in Africa, according to a 2018 BMJ Global Health study.
We currently provide direct service health care for 315,000 people in Mali, while supporting the Malian Ministry of Health as they work toward a scale up of Community Health Worker-led health care to 3.5 million people nationally.
We’ve now seen the urgent need for Muso to serve both within and beyond Mali’s borders. The global crises of maternal and child mortality are solvable, everywhere.
Building upon the extraordinary potential of proactive care, Muso is now preparing for global growth. This will include expansion to new countries, intensive technical assistance (TA), and world-class research designed to change global policy and practice. Through these efforts, we aim to serve the global effort for universal health care, maternal health, and child survival. The World Bank, the UN MDG Health Alliance, and USAID have all featured Muso’s work as a global best practice.
