The Targeted States High Impact Project (TSHIP) is using high-impact, cost-effective, integrated interventions to improve maternal and newborn health in northern Nigeria's Sokoto and Bauchi states.
Today, JSI is strengthening health systems through behavior change communications, research and evaluation, strategic planning, and more through the Maternal and Child Survival program, the SPRING Nutrition program, and the Malaria in Pregnancy project. Between 2009 and 2015, JSI's Targeted States High Impact Project (TSHIP) increased access to maternal, newborn, and reproductive health and family planning services and increased community engagement to improve health outcomes in northern Nigeria’s Sokoto and Bauchi states.
As an essential component of health systems strengthening, JSI, through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, SCMS, UNFPA, and Global Fund-financed activities, is helping the Government of Nigeria (GON) strengthen the supply chain for maternal and child health, HIV&AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and family planning commodities. Among its accomplishments, JSI has streamlined distribution systems across commodities and health programs and improved the government’s ability to plan for its commodity needs at both the national level and in a number of states. Our focus on supply chain optimization for HIV commodities in particular has unified 12 separate supply chains, reduced costs and improved performance, establishing a model for harmonization and integration across programs. The GON, in concert with the Global Fund, is now seeking to apply this integrated supply chain model across all vertical program commodities. In addition, JSI has provided the thought-leadership and technical assistance to apply private sector best practices at the state level, introducing vender management inventory (VMI) direct delivery systems in Bauchi and Ebonyi states, and supporting business process reengineering and optimization of the essential drug program in Cross River State.
