Doctors Without Borders in Mali
[one_half]Though the general health situation in Mali is stable, certain health problems are on the rise, including malnutrition. In Mali today, 38% of children under the age of 5 suffer from stunted growth. Doctors Without Borders (DWB) teams have shown that early intervention can reduce infant mortality
and the most severe forms of malnutrition.
