IMPACT: In partnership with the Ministry of Health JSI is introducing child health registers to collect routine child health data.
JSI began working in Mozambique in the late 1980’s to increase access to quality family planning services and commodities. Since then, our programs have expanded to include women’s and children’s health, HIV, malaria, injection safety, health care waste management, heath supply chain management, and environmental health.
We have a long history of working with the government to strengthen the supply chain and build management capacity, including capacity building for warehousing, tracking, quantifying, and purchasing commodities. Our work has improved the supply chain for essential health, family planning, and malaria commodities by supporting the government’s efforts to strengthen the supply chain at the national and district levels. We have also engaged communities and faith-based organizations to promote safe practices and effective treatments to prevent the spread of HIV.
We continue to work with global and national stakeholders to strengthen Mozambique’s health system. Today our work focuses on building the capacity of local organizations to reduce the incidence of HIV infections in adolescent girls and young women, strengthening data systems quality to promote data-driven decisionmaking, social behavior change for voluntary male circumcision, and malaria prevention.
