Sustainably meeting the global health goals of today requires strengthening and working in partnership with the private sector. For over 30 years, JSI has worked at global, national, and local levels to advance the role of the private sector, working in partnership with governments, to deliver affordable, reliable, and equitable access to life-saving health services and products. We address the most critical needs facing private health providers and their clients through agile, adaptable, and appropriately-tailored approaches that leverage our deep expertise in core health system disciplines and program areas.
Highlights of JSI's private sector work include:
Building capacity of private health providers, including drug shops and pharmacies
Strengthening supply chains
Shaping markets through public-private partnerships (Introducing Chlorhexidine in Nepal: A Public-Private Partnership Case Study)
Facilitating total market approaches (DISCOVER-Health, Zambia)
