In collaboration with the US Agency for International Development (USAID), partners, country governments, and regional institutions, the African Strategies for Health (ASH) project explores emerging health issues, trends, and innovative solutions in key technical areas. ASH works to elevate these issues on the development agendas of key stakeholders and facilitates consensus building processes to promote the adoption of best practices, evidence-based strategies, and approaches to address them. ASH is a five-year contract funded by the United States Government (USG) through the Office of Sustainable Development within USAID’s Bureau for Africa (USAID/AFR).
ASH is implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in collaboration with three core Africa-based partners: African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), Khulisa Management Services, and Institut de Santé et Développement (ISED) of Dakar University, Senegal. ASH also has collaborative partnerships with select African Regional Institutions.
