Environment for intervention

Since 2012, Mali has been affected by an unprecedented political, security and food crisis. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), 42% of the Malian population still does not have access to a health structure within 3 miles. No medical structure meets health standards; and 18% of them are not, or partially, functional.

Women and children are the first to be affected by various pathologies, but also by domestic violence. There are currently very few structures for their reception and care.

In Mali, private health facilities are a key component of the country’s economy, and do not guarantee access to care for the most disadvantaged. The few public hospitals are mainly located in the major urban areas.

The Mélodies du Monde team has therefore initiated this project for the creation of a medical and socio-cultural center. It will be located in the municipality of Sanankoraba, of about 40,000 inhabitants, and located 28 miles south of Bamako, capital of Mali.

The Mélodies du Monde Center has several objectives: to facilitate access to some medical care, to promote culture and education by offering literacy courses; and finally, create a space for dialogue for people who are victims of violence. Several principles govern this project: equal access, free access and confidentiality.
