Management Sciences for Health


Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is a nonprofit advisory organization that helps developing nations build strong, sustainable health systems. They operate under the belief that health is a human right that should be available to everyone, and they have worked for over 40 years in over 150 countries to change global healthcare practices that contradict that ideal.

MSH currently has offices located in over 50 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. They work with governments and health professionals to provide capabilities in leadership, human resource management, education and finance to improve the quality, availability and affordability of health services in priority health areas, including:


– Tuberculosis

– Malaria

– Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

– Family Planning and Reproductive Health

– Chronic non-communicable diseases.

Management Sciences for Health helps vulnerable communities build locally-owned health systems because they believe that strong health systems are the most sustainable way to improve the global health shortage.

MSH’s vision for the future is one of continued progress in their mission to ensure everyone has the opportunity to live a long, healthy life. They will continue to improve the health of the world’s most vulnerable people by advocating for universal health coverage, continuing to implement programs that empower people and strengthen health institutions, contributing to global health research efforts, and developing health systems innovations.
