I have recently returned from Bamako, Mali where MLI co-sponsored the kick-off workshop of a recently launched process by Mali’s Ministry of Social Development, Solidarity, and the Elderly (MDSSPA) to develop and implement a strategy to expand mutuelles de santé nationwide to provide financial access to health care for 80% of its population currently not covered by any form of health insurance. The workshop, titled “National diagnostic and discussion toward scaling up mutuelles de santé in Mali,” was held the 24-26 of September 2009 in Bamako . This event drew approximately 76 people from all regions of Mali to share experiences and reach a common understanding of the state of development of mutuelles today in Mali, as well as the goals and plans of the Government to increase its commitment to a more rapid and systematic expansion of mutuelles beginning in 2010. Participants represented civil society, locally elected leaders, and health and social development technicians and decision makers. Visit the event page for more information and documents.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
