TajikistanIn 1992, JSI became active in the then-newly independent state of Tajikistan, implementing the Resources for Child Health (REACH) Project’s emergency immunization initiative. JSI’s management of both iterations of the Central Asia Quality Health Project (ZdravPlus I and II), employed evidence-based practices to improve services, maximize the impact of resources, and build the capacity of individuals, communities, and the government to seek or provide quality, affordable care. Concurrent to ZdravPlus, JSI also launched the Central Asian Program on AIDS Control and Integration Targeting Youth (CAPACITY) project in Tajikistan—both were USAID-funded initiatives.
The Global Fund uses voluntary pooled procurement (VPP) and capacity building services aimed at ensuring a cost-effective and efficient procurement process. JSI's Partnership for Supply Chain Management is the VPP procurement service agent.
Satisfied with the size of her family, a woman in Tajikistan chooses Voluntary Surgical Contraception--an family planning option that has been supported across eastern Europe by the Europe and Eurasia Regional Family Planning Activity.
This three-year initiative was designed to leverage best practices in family planning with the goal of accelerating FP program implementation across the region, ultimately increasing modern contraceptive use and decreasing abortion rates.
JSI built Central Asian technical capacity to launch large-scale and urgent responses to HIV and AIDS, and developed indigenous institutions and networks able to develop and manage comprehensive HIV control programs.
The project supported an integrated and comprehensive approach to health systems strengthening and quality improvements in service delivery. JSI played a lead role in improving quality of care and enhancing the population's involvement in health care.
