Kyrgyz Republic

JSI first began working in Kyrgyzstan in 1992 with USAID’s Resources for Child Health (REACH) Project, which implemented an emergency child immunization program in the newly-independent country. In the 2000s, JSI managed the Europe and Eurasia Regional Family Planning Activity, which improved how family planning and reproductive health principles are taught at the pre-service level (before health providers begin practicing medicine) in Kyrgyzstan.

Through the AIDSTAR-One project, JSI completed a series of assessments and training activities in Kyrgyzstan to improve infection prevention practices and map HIV clinical and social support services in selected urban settings.

JSI also managed Kyrgyzstan country program for USAID’s flagship global maternal and child health project (MCHIP), which worked to ensure the eradication of polio and to prevent future outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs). The project achieved its goal by working within the existing health system at national, oblast, rayon, and health facility levels to better and more reliably monitor immunization services by identifying high-risk groups and by working more effectively with local community resources.

JSI also managed the SPRING Nutrition project in partnership with the Kyrgyzstan Ministries of Health and Agriculture, working to reduce stunting through evidence-based interventions with a clear pathway to national scale-up. JSI worked to improve nutrition-related behaviors at the household level while also building capacity at the national level in support of nutrition-centered policy and decision-making.

Currently, JSI is supporting the state social contracting process in Kyrgyzstan through the Advancing Partners & Communities project. JSI is working with local HIV/AIDS NGOs to strengthen their capacity in multiple areas in preparation for domestic financing of HIV.
