HaitiThe Family Planning and Logistics Management (FPLM) and Resources for Child Health (REACH) Programs, implemented in the late 1980s, were JSI’s first activities in Haiti. These initial projects expanded access to family planning services and improved systems of pediatric immunization and respiratory infection control in children, respectively. JSI has since worked to improve access to food and essential medicines, ensure quality maternal and child health services, and bolster HIV programs.
Today, through the Advancing Partners and Communities project, JSI is helping to strengthen the capacity of 11 local organizations that receive direct and/or indirect funding from USAID. JSI’s capacity-building assistance is helping to improve their organizational capacity and ability to manage their USAID awards. This activity builds on the success of the Technical Assistance to New Partners’ Initiative, which also built the capacity of Haitian NGOs.
Recently JSI has also developed and integrated a full range of nutrition interventions for HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and support services the USAID-funded Strengthening Partnerships, Results and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) and also strengthened the country’s supply chain logistics through the Supply Chain Management System project.
Under USAID's flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program, JSI leads the child health,immunization, and pediatric HIV activities.
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.
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 and its partners strengthened global procurement and distribution systems for essential HIV&AIDS medicines and supplies in over 20 countries, leading to lowered costs and better availability in some of the hardest to reach areas of the world.
