This literature review, carried out by the USAID Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) project, was conducted to help identify key concepts and practices that inform the development and use of technical assistance and leadership development training of those who govern in the health sectors of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Insights have been distilled from the extensive studies of health sector governance by the WHO, the World Bank, the OECD, BoardSource, and the Governance Institute. These insights are intended to guide studies among LMIC health sector leaders around key governance principles and practices that might shape the design of USAID strategies for health system strengthening, country ownership, inform interventions carried out by the LMG project, and ultimately improve health outcomes in LMIC health sectors.
