Family Planning & Reproductive Health

Since its very first project in 1978, JSI has worked to promote an individual’s choice in planning his or her family. Controversial, complex health issues are included in JSI’s portfolio and key among them are family planning and reproductive health for individuals, including youth and families. Family planning, adolescent reproductive health, improved prevention and treatment of reproductive cancers and cancer stigma reduction, sexually transmitted infections, maternal health, and evidence-based integrated programs are JSI areas of expertise.

With our focus on addressing the needs of underserved and vulnerable populations, JSI has developed women- and youth-centered programs throughout the world aimed at addressing unmet needs for family planning information, services, and supplies. With program experience in more than 100 countries—from Albania to Zimbabwe, Nepal to the United States—JSI has developed innovative approaches that yield results in a wide range of settings. An emphasis on building the capacity of individuals, families, communities, and institutions enhances sustainability. Investments in local human resources continue to contribute to ensure success long after projects and programs end. From integration of family planning into high quality HIV and immunization programs to expansion of high quality community-based programs based on volunteer health workers, JSI has been at the forefront of expanding access to services where and when they matter most.

In addition to improving service delivery and quality of care, JSI assists with strategic planning and implementation to build or extend regional and national programs, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of governmental and nongovernmental agencies and private sector entities. Decades of work on contraceptive supply chain and national contraceptive security policies have enabled generations of women to access modern care.

Our efforts have reached millions of beneficiaries internationally and have greatly improved the lives of women, men, youth, and their families and communities.
