Romania

JSI began working in Romania in 1999, partnering with the Women’s Reproductive Health Initiative to improve reproductive health in women and reduce maternal mortality. JSI went on to implement the Romania Family Health Initiative, a program that made dramatic progress in decreasing the rate of abortions by increasing access to family planning.The initiative also provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health and NGOs to expand and improve the quality of HIV prevention activities for most-at-risk populations and youth and worked to increase awareness of avian influenza.
