-Identify and target gaps based on needs of the health system to support design and delivery of more customized programming for each country.
-Identify specific health system leadership capacity gaps that can be addressed to catalyze the key community health policy reforms or initiatives in each country. 
-Assess the health system leadership capacity building strategies (where they exist) for partner governments and propose a roadmap to development and/or improvement of such strategies.
-Ensure that the work to meet each of the objectives is approached from a gender mainstreaming perspective.
