Reports to : Head of Health department

About CRS :

Catholic Relief Services is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS works to save, protect, and transform lives in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.


Background :

CRS has been present in Mali since 1999 and works in the areas of health, education, agriculture, and emergency response. With its head office in Bamako and sub-offices in Mopti, Timbuktu and Gao, CRS is a well-respected relief and development actor in Mali. The health portfolio represents CRS Mali’s largest sector, with current programming covering the majority of the country (all regions except for Kidal) and sectors including laboratory systems strengthening, tuberculosis control, zoonotic disease, and seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC). CRS partners with a variety of local partners to ensure quality implementation of health programming, including Church partners, local NGOs, and the Ministry of Health.

CRS has been a leading implementer of SMC activities in Mali since 2015, beginning with the UNITAID-funded ACCESS-SMC project, and continuing as a subrecipient under the Global Fund malaria award for 2017 and 2018. In the 2018 SMC campaign, CRS provided over 1.8 million Malian children in 25 target districts with preventative SMC drugs.  In addition to managing the drugs and other inputs to ensure last-mile SMC delivery, CRS has been a leader in collaboration with the GoM for micro-planning, adaptation of service delivery approaches, digital data collection for real-time adjustment, and quality reporting. CRS has negotiated with PSI to continue its role in SMC implementation in 25 districts in 2019 and 2020 with a budget of 4.8 million Euros, to reach a target of 1,941,980 children in the first year. CRS’ expanded role also includes a significant component of strengthening the capacities of the NMCP, to ensure progressive, effective handover of management of the malaria grant from CRS to the NMCP by 2020.
