Strengthening Health Systems

Within the Strengthening Health Systems portfolio, we work directly with Ministries of Health to support their visions for health systems strengthening. We build systems and tools for performance management and accountability, catalyze intersectoral leadership teams, and evaluate complex interventions to improve health systems performance. For example:

Since 2020, GHLI has served as a Verified Implementing Partner for the Strategic Training Executive Program (STEP 2.0) in Anglophone Africa, Francophone Africa, Lusophone Africa, Eastern Mediterranean region, and South Asia. STEP 2.0, supported by Gavi, the Global Fund, and USAID, prepares public health professionals to strengthen supply systems for immunizations, HIV and malaria commodities, and other essential medications and supplies through effective problem solving, efficient operations, data-driven performance management, and robust human resource management processes. GHLI led the creation of a fully virtual model (vSTEP 2.0), and has delivered STEP2.0 in Zambia, Côte d’Ivoire and Cameroon.

Public health researchers are responsible for generating actionable research and educating the next generation of public health professionals. Our Research Leadership Program is a 12-week, certificate-level program designed to increase leadership and mentorship capacity among junior and mid-level researchers from leading public health institutions. The program aims to prepare participants to mentor trainees and junior faculty, assume leadership roles within their research organizations, and develop stronger professional and research collaborations within and between institutions. With funding from the National Institutes of Health, the US Embassy, and USAID, we have delivered this program in South Africa, Sudan, Chad, and India.
