It is encouraging how much the world is focused on achieving universal health coverage, and the Sustainable Development Goals only add to that momentum. While much courageous leadership and thoughtful work have led to amazing progress toward UHC in many countries, there is still much to be done for all people have access to the quality, affordable health services they need. 

The Lancet reports today on the recent partnership of MSH and Gabon on the Support Program for the Implementation of the National Health Plan. From reporter Andrew Green's article, "Gabon hopes new plan will plug health-care gaps" (registration required): “Gabon must ensure equal access to health care for all”, said First Deputy Prime Minister Paul Biyoghé Mba at the launch. “This is why the ministry is launching this plan, which aims to bring about an improvement in the range of health- care services in Gabon.”

The USAID-funded Leadership, Management & Governance Project, led by MSH, was honored this month at the 2016 International Society for Performance Improvement Awards of Excellence Ceremony during ISPI's Annual Conference. The LMG Project’s partners, along with experts in wheelchair service provision and credentialing, were acknowledged for "Outstanding Human Performance Intervention" in recognition of measuring the skills and knowledge of wheelchair service providers who work in under-resourced countries.
