Muso High-quality preventative healthcare at home and on time

In sub-Saharan Africa, the elevated number of maternal and child deaths from preventable and treatable causes is a consequence of the limited access to reliable healthcare. Not only are the quality of care and facilities poor, but barriers such as cost, distance and women’s lack of decision-making power may also prevent at-risk patients from receiving critical, timely assistance. Muso, a non-profit organization, designs and deploys scalable, proactive healthcare systems to provide universal healthcare through door-to-door visits of trained, salaried and supervised community health workers (CHW). For patients with complex needs, Muso provides rapid access to free clinical care. Muso also delivers technical assistance to governments to help them improve their CHW-led universal healthcare systems
