Request for Proposals: Survey of Effective Leadership in Health in 50-70 countries

The importance of effective leadership in health is increasingly recognized and has been consistently raised at global health events in the last decade. Recent health crises have also demonstrated the central role that leadership - at all levels - plays in determining how successful health systems are in optimizing available resources in order to produce good health for populations. There remains however, limited ‘evidence’ in the health literature on what constitutes effective leadership and the systems that support its development, particularly in the context of low- and middle-income countries. Leadership in health extends well beyond ‘evidence informed decision-making’ and is both an art and a science. As such, the study of leadership in health requires an understanding of both the individual competencies as well as the system processes and structures that support them.

The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research invites proposals for the conduct of a Survey of Effective Leadership in Health in 50-70 countries.
