BangladeshJSI has been working in Bangladesh since 1988, implementing projects that focus on urban immunization, reproductive health, contraceptive security and logistics, and capacity building for HIV treatment and prevention. JSI led the Urban Family Health Partnership (UFHP) Project from 1996 to 2002, which delivered an essential package of health services through a network of NGOs throughout the country. Through its management of the USAID | DELIVER Project, JSI improved essential health commodity supply chains in Bangladesh.
Currently, through the USAID-funded Strengthening Partnerships, Results and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) project, JSI is also working to expand and institutionalize the use of nutrition best practices in Bangladesh. In September 2016, USAID featured SPRING's work in a photo essay, Rani's School of Nutrition.
JSI is supporting and advancing community programs in more than 30 countries that seek to improve local health services, especially those related to family planning.
A logisitcs management information system website designed by the USAID DELIVER PROJECT in Bangladesh is honored as Best Government Initiative.
SPRING is scaling up high-impact nutrition practices and policies by providing technical support on preventing stunting and maternal and child anemia, linking agriculture and nutrition, and changing behavior through communication.
JSI managed a stockpile of outbreak response commodities, and provided procurement and distribution services to respond to outbreaks from avian flu to ebola worldwide and to pre-position supplies at regional and country levels for rapid deployment.
