The Ukrainian Ministry of Health (UMoH), working with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in support of the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) SAFEMed project, is seeking information on how an interested contractor could develop and implement a national medicine verification (serialization) practice.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Health, working with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in support of the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Safe, Affordable, and Effective Medicines for Ukrainians (SAFEMed) project, is seeking information on how an interested contractor could develop and implement a national medicine verification (serialization) practice.

In most countries, tuberculosis (TB) services are decentralized up to the most peripheral health facilities and often into the community. On the other hand, HIV/AIDS services are generally much more centralized because scale-up of services, especially of antiretroviral therapy (ART), started only quite recently.

In spite of substantial advances in maternal and newborn health over recent decades, roughly 300,000 girls and women still die due to pregnancy-related complications every year. At present, the global community largely agrees on what needs to be done to prevent these deaths and improve the health and wellbeing of women and babies.

In 2011, Malawi pioneered an ambitious test-and-treat approach for pregnant and breastfeeding women, known as Option B+. Under this strategy, all HIV-infected pregnant and breastfeeding women are provided with lifelong antiretroviral therapy (ART) regardless of their CD4 count or clinical stage.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major public health problem in the regions of East, Central, and Southern Africa (ECSA). Because TB is an airborne disease, its transmission is facilitated by the movement of people across internal and national borders.

We build strong health systems—systems that offer every individual access to high-quality, affordable health services. Systems that can stop an epidemic in its tracks. Systems that can withstand the shocks of an economic meltdown or a conflict.

The objective of this study was to describe the conceptual and implementation approach of selected digital health technologies that were tailored in various resource-constrained countries. Drawing from our multi-year institutional experience in more than 20 high disease-burden countries that aspire to meet the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3, we screened internal project documentation on various digital health tools that provide clarity in the conceptual and implementation approach. Taking into account geographic diversity, we provide a descriptive review of five selected case studies from Bangladesh (Asia), Mali (Francophone Africa), Uganda (East Africa), Mozambique (Lusophone Africa), and Namibia (Southern Africa). A key lesson learned is to harness and build on existing governance structures. The use of data for decision-making at all levels needs to be cultivated and sustained through multi-stakeholder partnerships. The next phase of information management development is to build systems for triangulation of data from patients, commodities, geomapping, and other parameters of the pharmaceutical system. A well-defined research agenda must be developed to determine the effectiveness of the country- and regional-level dashboards as an early warning system to mitigate stock-outs and wastage of medicines and commodities.

The overall objective of this baseline study is to help gather or generate information as a point of reference on the health condition of the population living in the project supported health zones, the management and supervision capacity of health services decentralized entities,  the situation and barriers for access to health services, the quality of health services, and health knowledge,

The Knowledge Management Indicator Library is a comprehensive resource for measuring knowledge management in global public health with a searchable database of generalized indicators. The library can be used by knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation, communication, and program management professionals as they manage and share knowledge.  

Over six years (2011-2017), the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project strengthened health systems to deliver more responsive services to more people.

The primary goal of the Challenge TB (CTB) project in Afghanistan is to assist the NTP to reach its strategic objective of increasing TB case notifications by at least 8% annually through comprehensive TB care and prevention activities.

This report covers the life of project results of the USAID-funded Integrated Health Project Plus (IHPplus) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and Overseas Strategic Consulting, Ltd.

In high TB- and HIV-burden settings, the two diseases reinforce each other and share common risk factors. Single, categorical services provided to persons with multiple, related risk factors miss opportunities to diagnose, treat, and prevent TB and/or HIV.

The Jhpiego-led, USAID-funded Strengthening Human Resources for Health (HRH) project has focused on long-term and medium-term goals for health sector human resources development priorities earmarked by health sector leaders and policy makers in Ethiopia.

Strengthening information systems to support health data use is a critical component of quality improvement. In the past, research on quality of care has focused on the availability of resources and implementation of clinical guidelines, while often ignoring the regular metrics and monitoring systems used to inform decision making and manage improvement initiatives.

This issue of The eManager focuses on governing in the health sector, and presents four effective governing practices and their nine key enablers. It shows how health leaders and managers can contribute to a better-governed institution and, ultimately, improve health services and the health of the people they serve.

The Abuja Declaration (WHO 2011), which reported on investments in health, noted that funding targets are being missed, both domestically and in terms of international assistance.

The concept of good governance has gained prominence in development programs over the past decade. Good governance in the health sector and other sectors that have an impact on health is recognized as essential to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

The Integrated Health Project Plus (IHPplus) was implemented in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from June 2015 to June 2018 by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and Overseas Strategic Consulting, Ltd. (OSC), under a subcontract via Pathfinder/Evidence to Action.

Strengthening health systems is the core of MSH's response to HIV and AIDS. We build the capacity of public and private sectors worldwide to prevent, treat, and manage HIV and AIDS and build systems for health that deliver gender-responsive, high-quality HIV services that are adapted to the populations we serve.
