What does it take to practice good governance? What can be done at the community or facility level, at district, regional or national levels or even at the international donor level that will improve governance? And once we know what needs to be done, how do we make it happen?
We invite you to join us during this nine-day seminar and explore together a set of practical tools to help decide where and how to start making changes that will improve the way communities, facilities, or government teams transform good governance ideas into action.
Please join the USAID-funded, MSH-led Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project for an end-of-project event celebrating six years of learning across more than 90 countries. The LMG Project’s cross-cutting work in the social sector, disability rights, and priority health areas has linked the critical role of leadership development, strong management systems, and effective governance to sustainable development outcomes.
Together we will discuss common challenges, adaptable approaches, and a way forward for building resilient health systems and inclusive societies.
The Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project gives people in decentralized environments skills to overcome challenges to create resilient and responsive health care.
Join us to learn how we build the leadership, management, and governance capacity of individuals, teams, and institutions to strengthen health service delivery systems.
The combination of board and staff working in full alignment and harmony can be a force for positive change, success, joy, resilience and sustainability. When the opposite is the case we see trouble: frustration, mutual distrust, wasted energy and other resources and little chance of the organization fulfilling its mission.
Although there is no simple recipe for making sure that boards and staff work well together, in this seminar we will explore key ingredients for effective governance. Join us for an exploration of what makes for good boards.
Watch a video introduction to the seminar.

Girls are among the most marginalized and vulnerable, and reaching our shared goal of ending preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths within a generation will require international and national commitments. Local ownership and accountability at all levels of government is required to fully address gender inequality and ensure that every girl has the services and resources she needs.
Please join the Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) project partner, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, and other implementing partners to learn about 10 years of pioneering USAID-supported programming to ensure men who have sex with men (MSM) and people living with HIV (PLHIV) in the Middle East and North Africa have access to HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.HIV, MSM, and PLHIV activists from Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia will discuss implementing HIV and civil society strengthening programs in a highly restrictive and hostile environment.RSVP here
This panel discussion will focus on how key local stakeholders are working to build systems capable of addressing long-term global health issues like noncommunicable diseases while maintaining resilience to outbreaks like Ebola. In light of the need to develop domestic financing mechanisms to pay for long term health solutions, stakeholders are moving beyond public-private partnerships to a model of country stakeholder engagement that includes and leverages the strengths of all actors.
