SwazilandIn the early 1990’s JSI rolled out two major public health initiatives in Swaziland: The Resources for Child Health project, which increased access to routine immunizations for children and improved treatment for acute respiratory infections; and AIDSCAP, USAID’s flagship global HIV prevention initative. JSI continued to improve child health in Swaziland through the Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (BASICS) project, and went on to implement activities through AIDSTAR-One, USAID’s follow-up to AIDSCAP. JSI managed the MEASURE project in a comprehensive health system analysis in the country, and has recently partnered with PEPFAR and the Government of the Kingdom of Swaziland in an initiative to scale up and create demand for Safe Male Circumcision (SMC) services.
JSI builds the capacity and monitors the progress of 46 organizations that received DREAMS Innovation Challenge sub-awards to reduce HIV infection in young women in Africa who have limited or no access to health care services.
Through the AIDSFree project, JSI provides capacity development and technical support to USAID missions, host-country governments, and HIV implementers at the local, regional, and national levels.
As a MEASURE Evaluation partner, JSI has provided technical support in developing countries to build the capacity of individuals and organizations to collect and analyze technically sound data, and use that data for health decisionmaking.
ESI improved information systems related to HIV, including OVC information systems, in South Africa, Lesotho, and Swaziland. ESI worked to strengthen the capacity of individuals and institutions to collect, analyze, and use information.
JSI provided technical assistance to UNFPA offices and local counterparts to enhance in-country capacity to forecast, finance, procure, and distributed reproductive health commodities and promote RH commodity security policy dialogue.
