To end preventable deaths worldwide, Muso works with government and NGO partners
to build health systems to deliver rapid, universal health care.
We accompany governments to redesign health systems with patients at the center by:
In partnership with government-run clinics and community-level health care systems, we use proactive care strategies to provide patients with free, quality health care.
1. DELIVERING HEALTH
We test our health care delivery strategies and health systems collaboratively, jointly publishing our research with key actors at public sector institutions including the Ministry of Health, the University of Bamako’s Malaria Research & Training Center, and the National Malaria Control Program.
Our technical assistance team works within the Ministry of Health to integrate proven strategies into national public health policy and practice.
MALIAN MINISTRY OF HEALTH
Muso has collaborated with the Malian government for over a decade as an operational research and implementing partner, building the evidence base required to create national health policy change.
In 2019, the Malian government announced a national health system reform, now referred to as the Mali Action Plan, setting out courageous health policies for the country’s 19 million people.
Drawing on the results seen in our Proactive Care sites, the Malian government committed to scale including professionalized Community Health Workers (CHWs) deployed nationwide at the last mile and every mile, greater investment in primary care clinics, free contraceptives, and the removal of point-of-care fees for targeted groups.
IVORIAN MINISTRY OF HEALTH
The government of Côte d’Ivoire has set out to transform its national health system to better serve its population of 26 million.
In late 2019, Muso launched a technical assistance partnership with the Ministry of Health in Côte d’Ivoire, embedding within the Department of Community Health to support the development and adoption of a national approach to dedicated Community Health Worker supervision. Muso's team has worked with our partners to plan, cost, and operationalize a new cadre of dedicated supervisors who will be deployed to support CHWs in government-run sites across the country - building the foundation for national scale.
At the end of 2020, Muso took a step further and committed to a long-term operational research partnership with the government of Côte d’Ivoire. Working with the Ministry of Health and other key system stakeholders, we will launch direct service sites to test community health strategies for rapid, universal health care.
Muso shares its research findings and invests in relationships to advance the national and global policy priorities that promise to cure delay, transform community-based health delivery and end preventable maternal and child mortality.
We present our work and research to audiences of global stakeholders at places like the World Health Assembly, the United Nations, and the Ouagadougou Partnership, to share learnings, and mobilize for universal health coverage and CHW-led health systems. As our work has gained momentum, we’ve joined with organizations who share our mission and vision for universal access to health care with Community Health Workers on the front lines.
