How funding core operations in Mali is enabling Muso’s continental scale strategy

Muso builds health systems that save lives by treating people faster. Their model of delivering proactive, doorstep care through a network of community health workers and clinics, national government partnerships, and advocacy improves community health and reduces preventable childhood deaths by more than 90 percent. 

Why Rippleworks Invested:

Muso operates in Mali, where their network of community health workers have conducted more than 7M home visits and their clinics have conducted more than 700,000 visits since 2008.   With more than a decade of success, many of Muso’s donors have become focused on funding higher-leverage opportunities—like R&D, geographic expansion, research, and providing technical assistance to other governments. In doing so, funding has become harder to find for the critical direct programmatic support required to maintain Muso’s steady, high-impact work in Mali that showcases their intervention’s life-saving potential.
