African Strategies for Health


African Strategies for Health (ASH) worked to improve the health of people across Africa by identifying and advocating for best practices, enhancing technical capacity, and engaging African regional partners in advancing sustainable solutions for health. ASH was supported by USAID’s Bureau for Africa, and we implemented the program in partnership with three core Africa-based partners: African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC); Khulisa Management Services; and Institut De Santé Et Développement of Dakar University, Senegal (ISED). ASH also had collaborative partnerships with select African regional institutions, organizations, and associations.

ASH explored emerging health issues, trends, and innovative solutions in key technical areas and contributed to increased commitment and action for improved health in the African region.
