Management Sciences for Health (MSH), a global health nonprofit organization, uses proven approaches developed over 40 years to help leaders, health managers, and communities in developing nations build stronger health systems for greater health impact. MSH works to save lives by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health.
Current projects include:
- Building Local Capacity for Delivery of HIV Services in Southern Africa Project (BLC)
- Strengthening Angolan Health Systems for Health (SASH)
- Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS)
The BLC project vision for Angola is that by 2014, targeted civil society organizations deliver improved evidence- and community-based HIV prevention services that promote healthy behaviors among families. BLC will focus on identifying and improving the capacity of local CSOs to deliver on performance-based grants to work with communities, traditional leaders, community health advocates, and local churches to improve individuals’ HIV prevention practices, and where possible in collaboration with local municipalities and health care facilities.
