Advancing opportunities for women: Advance opportunities for women in health system leadership and governance.
We will generate, synthesize, disseminate, and use evidence that leadership, management and governance results in improved health system performance and service delivery, and plan for and conduct prospective assessments of select L+M+G strategies to track results.Conduct research: Conduct implementation research in field-supported projects to know what works and what doesn’t related to L+M+G interventions.Ensure use of evidence: Synthesize and ensure the use of evidence in L+M+G interventions.
We will strengthen global support, commitment, and utilization of state-of-the-art leadership, management, and governance tools, models, and approaches for priority health programs.Engage with partners: Implement a partner engagement and collaboration strategy focusing on women leaders, health associations, host country governments, USAID Missions, and public and private sector actors.Garner cost-share: Successfully mobilize over $150 million of country buy-ins and over $30 million of non-USG resources by advocating the value of L+M+G interventions.c.

A LegacyOur vision is that…Through embracing the principles of country ownership, gender equity, and evidence-driven approaches, the Leadership, Management, and Governance Project (LMG) seeks to create a world in which the role of health leaders, managers, and governors is understood and highly valued, and where inspired leadership, sound management, and transparent governance lead to better health outcomes for all, including vulnerable populations worldwide.When the LMG Project Consortium concludes its work in the fall of 2016, we envision that: We will have gathered and widely disseminated innovations, insights, and evidence about how practices of inspired leadership, sound management, and transparent governance (L+M+G) strengthen health systems for enhanced use of health services, including family planning, MCH, HIV/AIDS and clubfoot, that yield sustained gains in health outcomes, especially among vulnerable populations and those with disabilities in over 20 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To build this legacy, we mustSupport thousands of health leaders, managers, and governors, especially women and vulnerable populations, to become engaged in effective leadership, management, and governance roles throughout all levels of the health systems and social sectors of LMICs;Help professionalize health services management by supporting a score of host country universities using modern curricula for L+M+G within schools of medicine, nursing and public health; as well as regional health professional associations that advocate and encourage lifelong learning for those that manage, lead, and govern in LMICs; Collaborate with partners to develop evidence through disciplined processes that measure and assess the value of L+M+G to stronger health systems, increased use of health services, and greater health impact;Create public-private sector partnerships that successfully advocate for and disseminate evidence of proven L+M+G interventions;Motivate and empower thousands of health service managers to achieve not only jobs of impact, but “careers of impact;” Build a digital resource library of materials, e-learning courses, practical tools, and leader profiles that fuel the application of L+M+G practices among future generations of those who, lead, manage, and govern health systems in LMICs; Raise awareness of the importance of gender equity, and enable health leaders to develop and direct policies to support women’s participation as leaders, managers, governors, providers, and consumers of health care–and ensure that these policies result in positive activities and impacts at all levels of the health system; andFacilitate country ownership of health systems by supporting a global cohort of managers who lead and leaders who govern to successfully identify and resolve service delivery challenges at every level of their health systems.
