Projet l’Espoir pour la Santé des Mères et Nouveaux Nés is a collaborative effort between CARE International and CARE Mali. Projet Espoir aims to improve maternal health, with a specific focus on safe delivery practices, by a combination of improving the quality of care available at local health centers and challenging social and cultural norms that inhibit women’s access to essential health services before, during and after childbirth. The goal of the project is to strengthen maternal health service delivery at both the community and primary care levels and improve the referral system in two districts (Bankass and Bandiagara) of North-Central Mali.
