For Every Child, hope

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families.

With strong Government commitment to child rights and support from a wide range of partners, Mali has made some progress in moving forward some child rights indicators in the past decade. For example, infant mortality declined slightly from 56 to 54 per 1,000 live births and stunting among children under five decreased from 38 to 27 per cent between 2012 and 2018. Yet, despite 5 per cent annual economic growth since 2013, Mali remains one of the poorest countries in the world: 44 per cent of the population (55 per cent in rural areas) lives below the national poverty line. The country faces a protracted humanitarian crisis and population displacement, with constrained humanitarian access hampering progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

Mali CO has developed a new country Programme (2020 – 2024), in which it is expected that Human resources management is effective and transparent; staff competencies are continuously improving; duty of care and core values are well established
