CVD-Mali’s mission is to improve the lives of the Malian population through health research and interventions which enable people to lead healthier, longer and more fulfilling lives.
It is committed to carrying out research and to sharing the results of that research so that its benefits may be felt beyond Malian borders – in the wider West African region and anywhere else in the world which may benefit.
CVD-Mali focuses on research and interventions which develop primary health care, to pave the way towards Universal Health Coverage.
Based on its long experience in developing and distributing vaccines, the centre’s focus is on ensuring that first-rate scientific research results in concrete, on-the-ground treatment for those who need it most.
CVD-Mali’s core principles are based around strong technical capacity in epidemiologic surveillance, laboratory capability, field surveys and clinical trials.
