Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is pleased to announce the start of a new project in Madagascar with USAID/Madagascar, The USAID Primary Health Care (PHC) project. PHC is  a five-year initiative to increase community-based primary health care service uptake and the adoption of healthy behaviors, particularly for women of reproductive age, infants, and children under five.  The project will focus its efforts in six of Madagascar’s 22 regions, where access to and quality of primary health care services is limited.

JOINT LETTER TO UN MEMBER STATES: Universal Health Coverage and the Post-2015 Agenda Your Excellency, Health is a universal human right. It is both a driver and an indicator of sustainable development. Accordingly, we urge the Member States of the United Nations, as they deliberate on the post-2015 framework, to adopt an agenda which will promote accelerated, equitable progress towards universal health coverage (UHC) in all countries.

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) applauds the report of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon that assesses progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and lays out recommendations for the post-2015 development agenda. The report [PDF], “A life of dignity for all: accelerating progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and advancing the United Nations development agenda beyond 2015,” prioritizes improving health as one of 14 top-line goals and recommends universal health coverage (UHC) as a “transformative action” to achieve it.

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is thrilled to announce that Vickie Barrow-Klein will be joining MSH’s corporate headquarters in Cambridge, MA, as Chief Financial Officer on August 5, 2013.
