Audit of USAID/Haiti’s Leadership, Management, and Sustainability Program.

Country: Haiti
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Description:

Since 1980, Management Sciences for Health (MSH) has been helping to strengthen Haiti’s health system, which has suffered from political instability and severe poverty.

In January 2008, the USAID/Haiti Mission funded the Leadership, Management, and Sustainability (LMS) Program, which focused on repairing the “broken” commodity security management and distribution system; addressing the shortage of leadership and management capacity within the Ministry of Public Health and Population; and answering the enormous unmet needs in reproductive health and family planning among the youth in Cité Soleil.

Despite considerable progress in controlling the HIV/AlDS epidemic, the disease continues to spread in the Haitian population, particularly among sexually active men and women. In further response to these challenges, in March 2010, USAID/Haiti awarded a 5-year, $12 million cooperative agreement to MSH to establish strong program and management systems and train and empower Haitian health managers and related personnel to be effective leaders with the managerial skills to maintain those systems. USAID/Haiti included an additional $20 million to fund activities for unanticipated events within the overall scope of the program description.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Haiti’s Leadership, Management, and Sustainability Program has established strong program and management systems and training and empowered Haitian health managers to be effective leaders with the managerial skills to maintain those systems.
