Global Health Leadership Initiative

The Global Health Leadership Initiative (GHLI) harnesses the strengths of a leading research university to drive transformation in management, leadership, and organizational performance, creating stronger and more resilient health systems for all.

We believe that defining and solving the world’s most pressing human challenges require us to work across cultural, professional, and organizational boundaries. Bringing together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world, GHLI serves as a nexus for conversation and collaboration. Through education and research, we equip groups of people to come together in new ways of working and learning and identify and solve problems in complex contexts. Founded in 2009, GHLI has served as a leading academic partner globally, promoting health systems transformation at the national, sub-national, community, and health facility level.

The Primary Health Care Transformation Initiative

GHLI’s Primary Health Care Transformation Initiative (PTI) worked across Amhara, Oromia, SNNP, and Tigray regions of Ethiopia to build culture of performance management and accountability at the district, zonal, and regional levels.
