JSI staff yield results for donor agencies, NGOs, and government stakeholders enabling them to articulate comprehensive national and project-level monitoring and evaluation strategies. Close collaboration with all stakeholders ensures ownership and use of evaluation and research results.
As a long-standing partner on USAID’s MEASURE Evaluation project, JSI staff have authored indicator manuals, frameworks for assessing national HIV M&E systems, and data quality audits tools. JSI has also developed the PRISM suite of tools to assess the technical and organizational capacity of national routine health information systems.

Staff members often collaborate with the Routine Health Information Network (RHINO) and the International Health Facility Network, for which JSI serves as the Secretariat and Coordinator.
Staff expertise includes program and impact evaluation; health systems research; indicator development; community, household, and facility surveys; collection and analysis of community-based health information; operations research; capacity building and training for monitoring and evaluation activities; policy development for M&E; and data use.
