Welcome to our inaugural newsletter for the USAID supported Leadership, Management, and Governance Project!

You are both the focus of and a valued partner in this newsletter's communication. We invite you to generate and share practical insights and ideas about how those who lead, manage, and govern can improve the health and well-being of people living in low- and middle-income countries.


Each edition of this communique will showcase the LMG project's collaboration with health leaders in many countries as they put into practice knowledge and tools to strengthen health systems for greater health outcomes. Themes in the coming year will include new trends in governance and leadership, monitoring and evaluation, gender, and new technologies.


This edition is focused on how the LMG project is supporting individuals and organizations that help persons with disabilities and vulnerable populations.
