The governments of Mali, Senegal and Niger rely on private schools to help overcome critical health worker shortages. However, many of these schools struggle with lack of accreditation, outdated curricula and learning approaches, inadequate teaching capacity, and meeting the needs of marginalized populations. Working with 12 private schools in the three countries, the program will increase the number of qualified, trained nurses who can serve rural communities facing a critical shortage of health workers in these countries - all as part of the effort to ensure that everyone everywhere has access to health care.
