ZambiaJSI has been working to strengthen health services and systems in Zambia since the mid-1980s, when it implemented the Family Planning Enterprise project. Over the past thirty years, JSI has significantly increased the scope and depth of support to the government, NGO, and private sectors to address the public health needs of the people of Zambia.
