SolutionMUS in the Field

SolutionMUS has been implemented in partnership with local governments, local and international non-governmental organizations, and the local private sector in seven countries, improving the health and livelihoods of 200,000 people. Our experience has shown that SolutionMUS works in settings as diverse as the rural Sahel, Himalayan foothills, and rural mountainous areas in central and eastern Africa. It has been applied in programs targeted towards agricultural, pastoralist and peri-urban communities.
