Burkina FasoJSI began working in Burkina Faso in 1992 with the Resources for Child Health (REACH) project, which assisted the government in the implementation and improvement of routine measles immunization practices. Through the USAID | DELIVER Project and the END Neglected Tropical Diseases in Africa project, JSI continues to provide technical assistance and training in Burkina Faso in the areas of health logistics and commodity procurement for maternal and child health, and family planning services, as well as the prevention and treatment of infectious tropical diseases, in particular, malaria.
PATH and JSI are collaborating with ministries of health and country implementing partners to coordinate DMPA SubQ country introduction and scale-up planning and implementation.
SPRING is scaling up high-impact nutrition practices and policies by providing technical support on preventing stunting and maternal and child anemia, linking agriculture and nutrition, and changing behavior through communication.
From 2006 to 2016, JSI procured $923 million worth of safe and effective malaria commodities; delivered them to 27 countries; strengthened malaria supply chains; improved supply chain visibility and accountability; and built local capacity.
JSI managed a stockpile of outbreak response commodities, and provided procurement and distribution services to respond to outbreaks from avian flu to ebola worldwide and to pre-position supplies at regional and country levels for rapid deployment.
More than a billion people suffer from neglected tropical diseases that cause illness, disability, and loss of productivity. JSI worked to build capacity in supply chain management, including quantification of medicines used for preventive chemotherapy.
