Maternal, Newborn & Child Health

 

Learn about our efforts to improve maternal, newborn and child health in the 2018 Every Woman, Every Child Progress Report

Despite progress, globally, 1.3 million adolescents and 5.6 million children under-five die each year, and 289,000 women die in childbirth from preventable causes. JSI’s maternal, newborn, and child health programs are designed to strengthen the health system and ensure that all women and children have access to the services they need, whenever and wherever they need them.

Over the past four decades, JSI has partnered with Ministries of Health, community and faith-based organizations, the private sector, and global partners in more than 80 countries to build and maintain strong health systems that are capable of delivering life-saving services and commodities. JSI’s approach aims to increase demand for and access to high-quality services for all women and children across the lifecycle by scaling up high-impact interventions that address systemic challenges. With deep expertise in supply chain management, social and behavior change, health information systems, and applied technology, we help our partners design and implement cost-effective, contextually appropriate total market solutions.

To achieve this goal, JSI works to improve access to high-quality interventions in the following technical areas:
