Democratic Republic of Congo

Since 1997, JSI's Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (BASICS), IMMUNIZATIONbasics, and the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) have been providing technical support for immunization initiatives in the Democratic Republic of Congo. JSI has also worked in the D.R.C. in the areas of HIV and AIDS, reproductive health, and public health systems strengthening. In recent years, JSI was commissioned by UNICEF to conduct an assessment of the availability of essential heath commodities and the functionality of the supply chain in the D.R.C..

Through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, JSI provides support to the Ministry of Health in USAID zones to strengthen the in-country supply chain for malaria commodities. JSI coordinates and collaborates with stakeholders to estimate commodity requirements, build capacity for the supply chain, improve the logistics information system, and decrease bottle necks to ensure effective delivery of commodities to the last mile. JSI has also lead efforts to reach a consensus on how to effectively implement an integrated supply chain and LMIS.
