Muso provides proactive healthcare to 350,000 patients in peri-urban and rural areas of Mali and integrates rigorous academic research and strategic advocacy to identify and share strategies that can accelerate global efforts for child survival, maternal health, and universal health care. Given the transformations in healthcare access and survival, Muso documented, over the next five years, our direct service, research, and advocacy to advance a new global model of healthcare.
In 2022, Muso will begin delivering its proactive care model to communities in Côte d'Ivoire, then reaching a population of over 300,000 people in three districts. As part of this intervention, Muso and its research partners will conduct rigorous studies to assess the effectiveness of the intervention to strengthen the evidence base to support global advocacy.
Muso are looking for someone who can set and execute a strategic research agenda for the entire organization. The Principal Research Manager will be responsible for overseeing the research team across two countries. He / She will be responsible for coordinating with research partners and supporting Muso's advocacy work that seeks to translate evidence into practice.
Muso believes no one should die waiting for health care. That’s why we’ve set out to create a cure for delay. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster, within hours of the moment they become sick. To do this, we partner with communities facing extreme poverty. Muso has spent more than a decade creating and improving our Proactive Care model, preparing it to serve the global effort for universal health care.
We have documented rapid health improvements across the populations we serve: a 2018 study found that communities we serve in Mali, which previously saw some of the world’s highest child mortality rates, sustained child mortality rates lower than any country in sub-Saharan Africa for five years, and ultimately reached a rate on par with that of the United States. Patient access to care increased tenfold. Muso now serves the governments of Mali and Cote d’Ivoire in their efforts to translate the results of this research into national policy and practice.
