Leadership, Management and Governance Project


Too often, health professionals are promoted into management and governance positions based more on their clinical expertise than on their ability to effectively lead teams and manage programs. 

For six years, the USAID-funded, MSH-led Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project underscored the importance of good governance and leadership to improve health—from family planning to maternal, newborn, and child health to HIV and AIDS—across more than 90 countries. LMG’s activities included working with staff at the centralized level of Haiti’s Ministry of Public Health and Population, supporting midwife managers in rural health facilities, and incorporating leadership competencies into health worker training curricula in Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Zambia—giving students essential planning, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving skills before they graduate. LMG also supported National Malaria Control Program in eight countries to effectively implement malaria control activities by embedding long-term advisors who worked side by side with teams to solve challenges.
