Leadership, Management and Sustainability (LMS) Program Final Report


The five-year Leadership, Management and Sustainability (LMS) Program was awarded to MSH in August 2005 by the US Agency for International Development's Office of Population and Reproductive Health, in the Bureau of Global Health, and concluded in December 2010.

MSH was the lead organization, and partnered with the Eastern and Southern Africa Management Institute, and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA). 

One of the LMS Program's key achievements has been demonstrating the link between improved leadership, management and governance, and improved health services. 

This report documents LMS Program results in five key areas: (1) impact on service delivery programs; (2) results in good governance; (3) mainstreaming and scale up of these practices; (4) virtual programs; and (5) advocacy for leadership and management development. The report also presents lessons learned, and offers recommendations for strengthening future leadership, management, and governance  interventions.
