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—as you discover the resources available on our new web portal, our discussions on social media, and the topics we feature in this newsletter, we invite you to share your insights on 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 gain access to health services, enjoy their rights, support themselves and their families, and participate meaningfully in their communities. We celebrate their energy, insights, and creativity to unleash the capabilities of thousands of people in many nations. Our work with these partners is in cooperation with the Programs for Vulnerable Populations within Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DCHA/DRG) of USAID.

Join us in advocating for health leaders, managers, and policy-makers to have—not just jobs of impact but—careers of impact, from villages to Parliaments.
