South Africa

JSI has been active in South Africa since 1999, when we began providing technical assistance through USAID’s Environmental Health Project, which improved environmental conditions and sanitation in order to reduce the spread of infectious disease. JSI has partnered with the Government of South Africa and NGOs to support their efforts to improve public health responses in information systems design, supply chain management, quality management, and monitoring and evaluation focused around HIV&AIDS, and child survival. The LIVESTRONG Foundation partnered with JSI to implement one of its first international cancer awareness and stigma reduction campaigns in South Africa. Today, JSI leads several projects that are strengthening information systems in-country, and helping USAID/PEPFAR map U.S. government-funded projects with an innovative geographic information system (GIS).
