MUSCO-supported projects all have different objectives and different impacts. They can be divided up into five main categories: Supporting Families, Empowering Families, Improving Care and Services (Surgery or Clinical Research), and Equipment and Facilities.

Despite their differences, each of these projects aims to achieve the cross-cutting goals described in the Initiative’s Strategic Plan.

More than 20 projects have been developed through the MUSCO Initiative since its launch. The nature of each one varies: from organizing a large-scale event, to recruiting human resources, to acquiring equipment, to implementing new protocols and more. Some have already reached an advanced level of maturity, while others are still at the ideation stage.

Be sure to have a closer look to learn more about each of them.
