Passport to Leadership

USAID first responded to the essential need for soft skills training in the health workforce in 1985, investing in the Family Planning Management Training program, and they have continued their leadership in this through the Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project.

Over the intervening years, we have recognized that just as a passport enables someone to travel between countries and learn about new cultures, strong leadership, management, and governance skills help take individuals and institutions to a whole new level of performance.

Passport to Leadership tells the stories of individuals, networks, organizations, and government agencies dedicated to delivering more responsive services to more people, or having benefitted from leadership, management, and governance training.
