The Leadership Development and Organizational Effectiveness (LDOE) aims to contribute towards the goals of the Government of India’s NRHM, in particular,

  1. The reduction in infant mortality rate
  2. Reduction in Maternal mortality ratio
  3. Universal access to public health services such as women’s health, child health
  4. Population stabilization
  5. Gender and demographic balance
Before initiating this programme it was visualized that due to lack of leadership and management skills the Govt. and health functionaries were not able to achieve the desired results. To achieve the goals of NRHM and other developmental programmes particularly within the auspices of the population and reproductive health programmes, existing staff require personal and organizational skills and competencies. This includes creating of shared vision, building consensus and aligning values, inspiring couples and families, mobilizing resources, building strategic alliance and partnership with private sector and NGOs, resolving conflict and so on. Therefore managing health programme is not enough. Leadership capacity development is needed to enhance the capabilities of those tasked with effective implementation of the programmes.
Goals and Outcomes:
The goal of LDOE programme is to improve FP/RH status through enhanced systemic impact in Bihar and Jharkhand by an LD/OE process in targeted locations. The programme will achieve the following inter-related outcomes:
  1. Leadership development and strengthening organizational effectiveness process leads to increased coverage and improved quality of FP/RH services.
  2. Capacity of critical institutions for systemic change – regional resource centers and state health societies – is strengthened to support LD/OE of NGOs and districts.
  3. Sustainable in-country capacity for LD/OE is established.
