USAID’s Localize Global Health Security (LGHS) Project’s goal is to work with local entities to address critical health security gaps at the sub-national level in target countries. LGHS will advance USAID’s prioritization of local partnerships as a core aspect of the long-term sustainability of the Agency’s development work. LGHS is guided by USAID’s localization goals outlined in key strategies and policies such as USAID’s Local Capacity Strengthening Policy. LGHS will contribute to advancing USAID’s localization goal by issuing grants to local entities for interventions that address critical gaps in the country’s health security. LGHS’s locally led approach will strengthen the implementation capacity and sustainability needed for lasting gains in global health security and will represent a key component of USAID’s contribution to International Health Regulations capacity strengthening through the Global Health Security Agenda. LGHS’ goal centers around three mutually reinforcing objectives:

  • Objective 1: Address critical gaps in health security through grants and technical assistance in prioritized technical areas
  • Objective 2: Strengthen the administrative and financial organizational capacity of local entities
  • Objective 3: Expand global knowledge base on approaches and best practices for local entities
