What is LDM?
Since 2000, the Leadership Development for Mobilizing Reproductive Health Program (LDM), sponsored by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, has supported more than 1,300 emerging and established leaders who have the vision and commitment to improve family planning and reproductive health (RH) services in Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, and the Philippines. Leadership Fellows are public health professionals, journalists, Islamic scholars, academics, lawyers, community health workers, doctors, nurses and government employees and they lead nonprofits, faith-based organizations, and public sector departments as advocates for strong, protective reproductive health policies. Among issues of interest are community level family planning services, HIV/AIDS prevention, and youth empowerment. The LDM program believes that collective leadership can be a powerful agent for making lasting, systemic change.
