Learn how JSI increased access to contraceptives in Pakistan through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT
 
JSI has worked in Pakistan since 1989, when it assisted the government to research and promote disposable, non-reusable syringe options in Pakistani clinics. Since then, JSI has implemented public health initiatives focused on maternal and child health, supply chain management, and health system strengthening.

JSI currently manages the Health Systems Strengthening Component of USAID’s Maternal and Child Health program, which supports the Department of Health in Pakistan’s Sindh Province to develop management capacity and systems for an improved health service package for families, and particularly women and children. Special attention is paid to the quality and equity of services.

Through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, JSI worked with the Government of Pakistan to improve availability of family planning, tuberculosis, and vaccine commodities down to the last mile. One significant milestone was the launch of the vaccine logistics management information system (vLMIS) in 2014, which, for the first time, made supply chain (including cold chain) data for vaccines visible down to the sub-district level.

JSI improved Pakistan’s health system by working with the Pakistani government and NGOs to improve maternal and child health services and the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases through the USAID-funded Pakistan Initiative for Mothers and Newborns (PAIMAN) between 2004 and 2010. Since then, 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.

JSI's privately-funded Reproductive Health for Refugees initiative worked on reducing gender-based violence, particularly in refugee communities.
