“From the trainings received from IRC Mali, we learnt that an improved water, sanitation and hygiene service not only helps establish good cleanliness in the maternity ward, but is linked to avoiding certain diseases and their transmissions.”

"Our presence will provide us an excellent opportunity to scale our successes at district level to the national arena. Our aim is simple, to make sure that Sustainable Development Goal 6 becomes a reality for all the citizens of our wonderful country. We will play our part and work with everyone to make that a reality''.
Afou Chantal Bengaly Traoré
Country Coordinator IRC Mali
Mali is a fragile, low-income economy. Strengthening WASH systems and achieving SDG 6 requires innovative ways to make the case for water and sanitation as a gateway to improved health and education services and wider social justice and economic benefits.
In 2018, together with World Vision, IRC Mali supported the mayors from the districts of Nossombougou, Ouolodo and Tioribougou to develop district WASH master plans. IRC Mali is now assisting in the implementation of these plans.
The team in Mali is running the newest IRC focus country programme. Our district work is providing the evidence and experience that will feed into the national influencing strategy and roadmap for Mali achieving SDG6.
