AngolaJSI’s work in Angola began with the Astarte Reproductive Health for Refugees Project in 1995, bringing reproductive health care and commodities to those displaced or otherwise affected by Angola’s long civil conflict, and providing small grants to local NGOs supporting conflict-affected populations. In 1995, JSI also partnered with the International Medical Corps on a small project. JSI went on to implement the Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (BASICS) project, and has continued to make progress in Angola in the fields of health logistics - particularly for malaria commodities - HIV&AIDS, and more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
