EritreaIn the mid-1990s JSI rolled out several major health initiatives in Eritrea, including the Family Planning and Logistics Management (FPLM) project, the MotherCare program, and the Opportunities for Micronutrient Interventions (OMNI) initiative. JSI provided a range of services, including technical assistance, training, and strategic planning. From 2000 to 2004, JSI implemented the USAID Maternal and Child Health TASC Order in Eritrea, implementing programs that strengthened maternal health, child health, and nutrition. Since then, JSI’s work has focused on developing health information systems with the government of Eritrea and providing health services and commodities to Eritrea’s large population of refugees.

JSI conducted overall program monitoring and evaluation in health policy, epidemiology, health and hygiene education, and surveillance for this USAID-funded project to improve environmental conditions and reduce exposure to infectious agents.
