Capitalizing on WASHplus project achievements – How WASHplus effectively integrated WASH and nutrition in Mali
Mali is currently ranked 179 of 188 countries worldwide in the 2015 Human Development Index. It has one of the highest fertility rates in the world and a 2015 child mortality rate of 115 per 1,000 live births. The country experiences food insecurity and poverty that contribute to high undernutrition rates. The causes of undernutrition are complex and varied resulting from a range of factors—insufficient information on appropriate practices and lack of critical supplies and services. This document, Capitalizing on WASHplus Project Achievements: How WASHplus Effectively Integrated WASH and Nutrition in Mali is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Global Health under the terms of Cooperative Agreement No. AID-OAA-A-10-0
