This technical brief was prepared by IDS in July 2021 to support the embedding of social science and anthropological perspectives in UK AID-supported Tackling Deadly Diseases in Africa (TDDA) technical assistance and its Early Response Mechanism.

It draws on a review of both academic and grey literature, as well as inputs from social scientists and other public health experts in Mali.  It presents key considerations regarding:

  • خلفية ونظرة عامة على النظام الصحي في البلاد؛
  • القضايا المتعلقة بتفشي الأمراض المعدية والاستجابة لها والتأهب لها؛
  • الحوكمة الصحية والجهات الفاعلة الرئيسية؛
  • تجارب المجتمع واستجاباته؛
  • الآثار المترتبة على التأهب والاستجابة للفاشية.

This briefing was produced with support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) funded Tackling Deadly Diseases in Africa (TDDA) programme managed by DAI Global Health.
