The Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Project collaborated with health leaders, managers, and policy-makers at all levels to show that investments in leadership, management, and governance leads to stronger health systems, and improved health for all. The LMG project embraced the principles of country ownership, gender equity, and evidence-driven approaches. Emphasis was also placed on good governance in the health sector—the ultimate commitment to improving service delivery, and fostering sustainability through accountability, engagement, transparency, and stewardship.
Leadership: Our Projects
The Integrated Health Project (IHP) partners with the government of Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to strengthen the country's health system at every level. IHP activities have focused on maternal, newborn, and child health, family planning, nutrition, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS, and water, sanitation, and hygiene—applying many proven, low-cost, high-impact innovations on a large scale.
The Local Technical Assistance Unit for Health Project (ULAT II) in Honduras provides technical support to the Ministry of Health and other partners to improve the quality of and access to family planning and maternal and child health services, and to improve the services provided by the Ministry of Health, the Honduran Social Security Institute (IHSS), and other private sector partners, through health sector reform and decentralizing health services.
While the Egyptian health system is characterized by an extensive infrastructure, an adequate number of physicians and nurses, medical technology and medicines, and good access to care, there still exists poor quality of care. The Improving the Performance of Hospital Nurses (IPHN) project works with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to address this challenge.
The Program to Build Leadership and Accountability in Nigeria's Health System (PLAN-Health) is a five-year, President's Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) associate award through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It is implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in Gombe and Akwa Ibom States and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
On April 16, 2010, the USAID awarded MSH the Leadership, Management and Sustainability Program/ Kenya Associate Award (LMS/Kenya).
