In March 2018, BMJ Global Health published findings showing that Muso’s peri-urban communities in Yirimadio, Mali had achieved and sustained a child mortality rate lower than that of any country in sub-Saharan Africa. In the final year of the study, Muso’s Yirimadio site had a child mortality rate of seven deaths per 1,000 live births -- on par with the child mortality rate in the United States. The study was covered by The Atlantic, Forbes, The Guardian, the BBC World Service, the Financial Times, and others. The findings have met with an enthusiasm and invitations for collaboration from global institutions leading the charge on child survival, including UNICEF, the World Bank, and USAID. These results may be unprecedented. But they should not be. The death of a child should be rare for communities everywhere. Health care should be for everyone.
