ALIMA USA, THE ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL ACTION: Fighting against childhood malnutrition in Mali

Fifteen-month-old Bintou was first admitted to an outpatient treatment program at a community health center in Commune I of Bamako, Mali, suffering from malnutrition. Despite being monitored by the ALIMA and its local partner AMCP-SP (Medical Alliance Against Malaria - Population Health), Bintou was not gaining weight. The medical teams decided to hospitalize her and she was admitted to the Intensive Nutritional Rehabilitation Unit (URENI) at a referral health center in Commune I of Bamako. In this picture, a nutritional assistant gives Bintou therapeutic milk, which is specially designed for severely malnourished children suffering from complications, who require hospitalization.
