Nouhoum Koita, CARE International au Mali

The “USAID district level health project” called “Keneya Ciwara” is one of the successful health projects of USAID Mali in the last five years. Keneya Ciwara aims to improve the access, quality and use of high impact health services and ensure the adoption of community and household key health practices by the communities and households in 13 cercles and the district of Bamako. The high impact health services are related to child survival (vaccination, malaria, diarrhea disease, nutrition and vitamin A), family planning and reproductive health. Keneya Ciwara is implemented by a consortium of international and national NGO led by CARE. The other members of the consortium are JHU/CCP, IntraHealth International, Action Against Hunger, and Groupe Pivot Santé Population.
