Advancing Equitable Access to Essential Health Services

 Our work at the global, country, and community levels advances USAID’s vision of health systems that afford “every individual a fair opportunity to attain their highest level of health regardless of social or demographic factors, with particular emphasis on underserved, socially excluded, and vulnerable populations.”

LHSS works to enhance equity by fostering interaction and inclusion across the public and private sectors, within civil society, and between the local system actors and communities.
