Local and Regional Partners
Our corporate philosophy is founded on the belief that local partners are often the best resource for local solutions that support long-term country ownership. We are proud of the relationships we have built with local government, nongovernmental, civil society, and faith-based organizations in over 70 countries around the globe.
MSH works with our local and regional partners in a variety of ways. Some local and regional organizations have unique talents and specialties that are best suited to the country context, and we engage these partners for their expertise and understanding of the local challenges. On other projects, we work with local and regional partners to enhance their capacity and build their technical skills to improve their ability to operate independently and support change long after MSH’s programs have ended. Finally, MSH believes in sustainable solutions and will often transition our activities to local organizations at the end of a project in order to continue building on and increasing impact and improvements to local health systems.
For example, MSH has a developed an excellent working relationship with the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), an African-regional organization headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya working to create lasting health changes in Africa. MSH and AMREF have partnered on several projects including Angaza Zaidi in Tanzania, a CDC-funded laboratory project in Kenya, and our Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) program.
We are always looking for new partners and to build collaborative relationships and want to hear more about the goals and capabilities of your organization.
