Health Systems Strengthening
To achieve universal health coverage by 2030 countries will need strong and resilient health systems that are capable of delivering affordable, high-quality health services. To help countries, their people, and institutions improve health outcomes over the long term, JSI manages and implements public health programs that contribute to stronger health systems and thus better quality health services.
JSI has strengthened health systems and improved access to life-saving commodities and services in more than 100 countries. We rely on local expertise to assess and respond to local needs quickly. In turn, local experts draw on JSI’s global knowledge to offer our country partners new, evidence-based ideas to help them achieve their health-related goals and targets.
JSI partners with governments and stakeholders at every stage to implement efficient, equitable, and effective integrated programs that improve access to high-qualtiy essential health services.
