African Strategies for Health
African Strategies for Health (ASH) works to improve the health of populations across Africa by identifying and advocating for best practices, enhancing technical capacity, and engaging African regional institutions to sustainably address health issues. The five-year project, funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by MSH, provides USAID and other development partners with information on trends and developments on the continent to enhance decision-making regarding investments in health.
ASH's key technical areas of expertise include maternal, newborn, and child health; infectious diseases; health systems strengthening; monitoring and evaluation; and communications and advocacy. The ASH Project supports USAID's Africa Bureau, USAID regional missions, and select regional institutions through generating evidence to improve understanding of constraints to and opportunities for accelerated progress toward ending preventable maternal and child mortality.
