Leadership, Management and Governance Project

Project Overview

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.

Led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), the LMG consortium included the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF); International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF); Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH); Medic Mobile; and Yale University Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI).
