Why we invest
The major killers of children - malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea – can be cured easily if treated immediately. Muso makes it happen by 1) mobilizing communities to report sick kids, 2) ensuring rapid "doorstep care" by community health workers, and 3) taking kids who need referral directly to the clinic. In Mali Muso dropped child mortality in a community of 11,000 people by an astonishing 90%. Muso's innovations could provide a huge boost to many government health worker systems.
