With a few exceptions, salary, training, and other associated costs for community health workers to provide essential care services in Mali is funded by donors, which makes the sustainability of this important workforce unlikely in the long term. There is an urgent need to support a gradual transition from external sources of funding to support this cadre to domestic funding sources to ensure service continuity at the community level. This analysis report provides results from a study to estimate the overall costs of essential care service delivery via community health workers in Mali in 2015 and identifies threats to sustainability.
