Representing a pivotal moment, the U.S. Agency for International Development is championing locally led and inclusive development, referred to as localization. This approach focuses on making U.S. foreign assistance more accessible, equitable, and responsive by shifting leadership, decision making, and funding to local actors—government, civil society, and the private sector. Health Policy Plus has shown the value of embedding aspects of localization into the development and implementation of government policies. Informed by lessons learned at the country level, this brief provides a set of recommendations and illustrative program examples for the U.S. Agency for International Development, its implementing partners, and the global health community to collaborate, implement, and innovate in new ways with local partners to advance localization in the policy, advocacy, financing, and governance realm.
