Benin

The Accelerating the Reduction of Malaria Morbidity and Mortality (ARM3) Project was a USAID-funded project aimed at assisting the Government of Benin in achieving the PMI target of reducing malaria-related mortality by 70%. The project worked closely with the National Malaria Control Program to improve and implement malaria prevention programs, improve and implement malaria diagnosis and treatment, and strengthen the capacity of the national health system to deliver quality malaria control interventions. As a partner on ARM3, MSH led activities related to leadership and management, supply chain management, and case management/quality assurance at all levels of the health system.

The Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Project in Benin was a three-year initiative with the overall goal of improving health outcomes by strengthening the leadership, management, and governance capacity at all levels of the health system, and targeting the achievement of universal and equitable access to a high quality and integrated Essential Health Package. LMG/Benin worked closely with the national health leadership to reinforce technical skills in health service delivery, combined with leadership and management skills. The project focused on modeling, training, mentoring, and exposure to best practices in stewardship and health leadership. By emphasizing teamwork and addressing the needed changes in behavior and mindset, LMG hoped to enable the Ministry of Health to uproot deep-seated attitudes, reinforce transparent communication, and reform its way of functioning from top to bottom.
