BoliviaJSI’s work in Bolivia began in the mid-1980s with the implementation of USAID’s ENTERPRISE project, an initiative which increased and improved family planning resources through private and public sector health providers. Since then, JSI has had a continuous presence in the country, managing programs that have improved health outcomes in the fields of child survival, maternal health, nutrition, environmental sanitation, and disease prevention. In recent years, JSI’s management of the Health Management and Quality (Gestion y Calidad en Salud) Project has produced positive health outcomes for marginalized populations in rural Bolivia through innovative approaches to health services delivery, healthcare financing, and information systems.
As a MEASURE Evaluation partner, JSI has provided technical support in developing countries to build the capacity of individuals and organizations to collect and analyze technically sound data, and use that data for health decisionmaking.
