For more than 20 years, PSI Mali has sought to increase access to sexual and reproductive health information and services (including the diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer); eliminate malaria across the country; treat and prevent the five neglected tropical diseases; implement hygiene and sanitation interventions and promote health products, services and healthy behaviors that support consumers to lead healthier lives. Since 2013, PSI Mali has set up and maintained a private clinic network called ProFam. This network counts 150+ clinics, with most associated with the “Grin,” a program that supports young Malians aged 15–24 to gain the knowledge and tools to make, and own, their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
In 2020 (*and parts of 2021), PSI Mali reached 19.39 million users through product distribution and service provision. This includes:
