African Strategies for Health Project

Project Period

October 2018 - September 2016

The African Strategies for Health (ASH) Project is a five-year project funded by the United States Government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Africa Bureau (AFR/B). It is being implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in partnership with African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), Khulisa Management Services, and Institut pour la Santé et le Développement (ISED), of Dakar University, Senegal.

ASH’s mandate is to assist AFR/B to work with African institutions, other development partners and partners within the USG to provide a strategic vision for guiding investments to further the health of Africans. The project conducts reviews, assessments and dialogues with partners working in the field to improve the understanding of constraints impeding the realization of the vision and the reaching of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the goals of the Global Health Initiative (GHI).

In April 2016, the project produced a video on addressing the sexual and reproductive health needs of urban youth. The video, ‘African Strategies for Health: Meeting the Needs of Urban Youth’, premièred at the Knowledge Management Share Fair in Arusha, Tanzania. You can watch it here.
