VietnamIn the early 1990s, JSI implemented its first project in Vietnam, the Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (BASICS) program, which sought to improve the rate of survival in young children by improving basic nutrition and health care. Within the last decade, JSI’s projects in Vietnam have focused primarily on HIV prevention: JSI has provided technical assistance and capacity building services to PEPFAR’s Supply Chain Management Systems (SCMS) program, which among other accomplishments, has reduced the average cost of antiretroviral treatments and virtually eliminated HIV commodity stockouts. JSI is managing USAID’s AIDSTAR-One project, which builds sustainable HIV prevention programs in country. JSI recently provided technical assistance to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control-funded Harvard AIDS Initiative in Vietnam (HAIVN).
Building Healthy Cities works with Smart Cities and urban health structures to add value via improved health goals and metrics in infrastructure and ICT projects, enhanced data systems, and increased efficiency of multisector urban spending.
JSI is supporting and advancing community programs in more than 30 countries that seek to improve local health services, especially those related to family planning.
Trachoma, an infectious eye disease, is the world's leading cause of preventable blindness. JSI is providing technical and logistics support to the International Trachoma Initiative, to treat infected populations with azithromycin.
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.
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.
AIDSTAR-One synthesized and disseminated scientific research and models of successful program implementation in all areas of HIV, and provided targeted technical assistance to build effective, sustainable programs.
JSI and its partners strengthened global procurement and distribution systems for essential HIV&AIDS medicines and supplies in over 20 countries, leading to lowered costs and better availability in some of the hardest to reach areas of the world.
