GuineaJSI began working in Guinea in the late 1980s, through the USAID-funded Resources for Child Health (REACH) Project, which implemented wide-scale immunization and acute respiratory infection control systems. Other JSI projects in the country have focused on infant and child health as well as reproductive health, family planning, and the prevention of gender-based violence among refugee populations.
In recent years, JSI has supported the Ministry of Health in Guinea through USAID’s Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) and through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT’s Supply Chain Strengthening & Commodity Security initiative, which has ensured a reliable, sustainable stream of essential health commodities to those in need.
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.
Health systems function smoothly when they are supported by effective supply chains. JSI's USAID | DELIVER PROJECT designed, developed, strengthened, and operated reliable and sustainable public health supply chains in developing countries.
