What does it take to practice good governance? What can be done at the community or facility level, at district, regional or national levels or even at the international donor level that will improve governance? And once we know what needs to be done, how do we make it happen?
We invite you to join us during this nine-day seminar and explore together a set of practical tools to help decide where and how to start making changes that will improve the way communities, facilities, or government teams transform good governance ideas into action.
Please join the USAID-funded, MSH-led Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project for an end-of-project event celebrating six years of learning across more than 90 countries. The LMG Project’s cross-cutting work in the social sector, disability rights, and priority health areas has linked the critical role of leadership development, strong management systems, and effective governance to sustainable development outcomes.
Together we will discuss common challenges, adaptable approaches, and a way forward for building resilient health systems and inclusive societies.
Strengthening health systems is the most sustainable way of improving health and saving lives on a large scale. For more than 45 years in over 150 countries, MSH has partnered with governments and communities to build strong, locally-led health systems that improve reproductive, maternal, and child health, fight infectious disease, and control chronic illness. MSH builds strong health systems that deliver everything it takes — people, money, medicine, information, and facilities — to prevent disease, treat illness, and empower people to lead healthier lives.
The combination of board and staff working in full alignment and harmony can be a force for positive change, success, joy, resilience and sustainability. When the opposite is the case we see trouble: frustration, mutual distrust, wasted energy and other resources and little chance of the organization fulfilling its mission.
Although there is no simple recipe for making sure that boards and staff work well together, in this seminar we will explore key ingredients for effective governance. Join us for an exploration of what makes for good boards.

Why are some children unresponsive to treatment for pneumonia, malnutrition and HIV? Why do some of them die? Maybe they are among the over 600,000 children that fall ill with tuberculosis each year but are never diagnosed. Join experts from the TB and MNCH communities in a global debate on the linkages between tuberculosis and maternal and child health.

Girls are among the most marginalized and vulnerable, and reaching our shared goal of ending preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths within a generation will require international and national commitments. Local ownership and accountability at all levels of government is required to fully address gender inequality and ensure that every girl has the services and resources she needs.
