The Countdown to 2030 country collaboration in Mali is a partnership between Institut National de Santé Publique and the Johns Hopkins University. This project is tailored to the government of Mali’s needs to strengthen country evidence and analytical capacity to inform country annual and midterm reviews of health progress and performance, with a focus on women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and nutrition.

Mali is implementing the second five-year tranche (2019-23) of its ten-year Plan Decennal de Developpement Sanitaire et Social (PDDSS) 2014-2023 , taking a comprehensive approach to health and social development. Accordingly, in May 2016, Mali launched the Global Strategy for the Health of Women, Children and Adolescents (2016-2030), which considers how to scale up high impact interventions to end preventable deaths of women, children, and adolescents. Mali has joined the Global Financing Facility (GFF), which will make it possible to mobilize additional resources for health and nutrition. The GFF investment case, currently under development, aims to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition, with a particular focus on reproductive health and nutrition.


Outputs, Products, Programs

The specific products still need to be discussed with the steering committee, but may include:

  • Annual reports on progress against GFF indicators and targets, using available survey and routine data
  • Peer-reviewed manuscripts on topics to be identified
  • Capacity building
  • Policy briefs and communication materials
  • Mali is also apart of the Urban Health Project 

The Mali team has also completed a review document on the maternal, neonatal, infant, and adolescent health and nutrition policies in the country between the years 1960 to 2022, which is not available for online publication.
