Muso: Saving Lives by Proactive Health System Design

Commitment by

Muso

In 2014, Muso committed to expand its health system to reach 100,000 people within one year in Yirimadjo, Mali. Muso's system is based on a simple premise: early access to already proven tools can avert nearly all under-five child deaths. Muso will achieve this commitment by undertaking three strategies: early warning, doorstep care, and clinic capacity. First, early warning will be made possible by a network of religious leaders, civil society actors, and community members mobilized to identify sick children and bring them to CHWs early in the course of their illness. Second, CHWs conduct door-to-door visits to provide a package of outreach, prevention counseling, diagnosis, treatment, referral, and follow up. And lastly, at the primary care level, Muso's model promotes access by removing out of pocket fees at the point of care, constructing new infrastructure, and staff training to support clinic capacity.
