Bamako, Mali

Mali the largest country in West Africa, is famous for its vibrant music and is considered one of Africa’s liveliest intellectual centers. Unfortunately, its health and development indicators are among the worst in the world. Poverty, malnutrition, and inadequate sanitation continue to put the population at risk for various health problems. The capital city, Bamako, is currently estimated to be the fastest growing city in Africa. The Global Smile Foundation has completed two successful missions to Mali, operating out of Gabriel Toure Hospital in Bamako.
