Women's Health

"Each year...more than half a million women die from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth alone - a number that has hardly changed in 20 years. In 2006, 74 percent of people living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa were young women." - Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization

MLI Reproductive Health Component

The nature of the reproductive health challenges we face today are such that any technical response must be rooted in political commitment and a rights-based approach to systems reform.  In recognition of this need and with the support of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, MLI has implemented a Reproductive Health component to MLI, working specifically in Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone.

    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.
