    Description
    The Technical Union of Malian Mutual Insurers (UTM) is one of three functioning bodies responsible for health insurance coverage. The UTM functions as an umbrella organisation for about 30 (of 164) voluntary mutual health insurance schemes. The UTM supports the creation, development and technical supervision of schemes and the management of a common health insurance platform for all its members. The National Strategy to Extend the Coverage of Mutual Health Insurers was adopted in 2011 to improve the accessibility to healthcare of populations in the rural and informal sectors. It is backed by a 10-year Health and Social Development Plan for 2014-2023, which aims at increasing insurance coverage to 20% of the target population and, in the long-term, universal health coverage. In this context, UTM began to redefine its strategies to improve its capacity and political position in the perspective of shouldering responsibility in achieving universal health coverage. At an operational level, it produced an internal organisation reform plan for 2014-2016. Organisation and individual capacity building was essential to enable the implementation of this plan. Experts mobilised by SOCIEUX worked with the UTM staff on outlining scenarios for strategic options and organisational structure. To do this, they started by assessing the existing institutional strategy and corporate capacities. An outline of the needed structures and competences followed. A first draft of a guideline to develop the UTM’s Strategic Development Plan resulted from this work, which set preliminary core objectives, mission, vision and main working axes for the UTM.
