A Management Sciences for Health-led team of global health organizations has been selected by USAID to implement the Technical Assistance and Support Contract (TASC 4)-Africa. TASC 4-Africa is one of USAID’s primary mechanisms to contribute to improvements in the health of people in sub-Saharan Africa, especially women, children, and other vulnerable populations.  TASC 4-Africa will play a key role in USAID’s central initiatives, Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths (EPCMD) and Creating an AIDS-free Generation.

Leadership, management, and governance skills are critical for medical, nursing, and public health professionals. The MSH-led, US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) Project with project partner Amref Health Africa developed an action-based learning, in-service certificate course to equip midwife managers with the leadership, management, and governance skills they need to deliver quality health services.
