AzerbaijanJSI’s work in Azerbaijan has focused primarily on reproductive, maternal, and child health. JSI became active in the country in 2006, managing the Europe and Eurasia Regional Family Planning Activity, a program which provided reproductive health and contraception commodities as well as family counseling and neonatal care to Azerbaijani families. JSI has since provided technical assistance, logistics management, and analysis to other public health initiatives in Azerbaijan, including USAID's comprehensive international health project, the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP).
From 2008 – 2014, MCHIP catalyzed integration of programs and services designed to reduce maternal, newborn, and child mortality in more than 50 countries.
This three-year initiative was designed to leverage best practices in family planning with the goal of accelerating FP program implementation across the region, ultimately increasing modern contraceptive use and decreasing abortion rates.
