Learn how JSI is increasing access to contraceptives in Pakistan through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT
 
JSI has worked in Pakistan since 1989, when it implemented the Resources for Child Health (REACH) program’s initiative to assist the government to analyze and promote disposable, non-reusable syringe options in Pakistani clinics. Within a five year period, JSI went on to roll out several more major public health initiatives in Pakistan, including Family Planning Logistics Management (FPLM), ENTERPRISE, the Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (BASICS), and MotherCare projects. JSI's privately-funded Reproductive Health for Refugees initiative also worked to reduce gender-based violence, particularly in refugee communities.

Since 2009, JSI through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT has worked with the Government of Pakistan (GOP) to improve availability of family planning, tuberculosis, and vaccine commodities down to the last mile. The project provides extensive technical support to the GOP in the areas of contraceptive forecasting, procurement planning, warehouse management, capacity building, and automation of warehouse and logistics management information systems (LMIS). A major milestone has been the launch of the vaccine LMIS (vLMIS) in 2014, which for the first time has made supply chain (including cold chain) data for vaccines visible down to the sub-district level. Initially funded by USAID and targeted on priority districts for polio eradication, the vLMIS has attracted significant new investment from other donors for scaling up to all areas of Pakistan. The vLMIS not only helps users at every level collect and manage supply chain data, it enables analysis and informed decision-making on routine operations and long-term planning for supplies in both the routine immunization system and for supplemental immunization activities (campaigns).

JSI has continued its efforts to improve health systems working with the Pakistani government and NGOs to improve maternal and child health systems and services and the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases through the USAID-funded Pakistan Initiative for Mothers and Newborns (PAIMAN). In addition, JSI has continued strengthening services and working to create stability even in areas where conflict has arisen, including the conflict zones of Swat, Buner, and Dir.
