Segou, Mali

MCI worked closely with the former Mali government to update its poverty reduction strategy for the city and the surrounding region. Working with Virginia-based nonprofit Physicians for Peace (PfP), MCI supported two fistula repair surgeries in Segou that reached dozen of women and a number of men suffering from fistulas and prostate problems. MCI and PfP also responded to the urgent need for clean, safe blood by working with several other partners for several years, including the American Red Cross, Centers for Disease Control, and Safe Blood for Africa, to create a sustainable regional blood bank Segou. build a hospital where everyone in the region can access safe blood in an emergency. Upon the arrival of a container full of blood banking equipment donated by the American Red Cross and mailed by Physicians for Peace in December, regional experts from Safe Blood for Africa trained local technicians to set up, operate, and maintain the new equipment that is housed in a special structure built by the Japanese government. This global coalition, which has worked closely with Mali's National Blood Banking Authority of the Ministry of Health and MCI's sister project Millennium Villages Project in Segou, wanted to show that this first regional blood banking facility could serve as a model for the entire sub-Saharan region.
