Join JSI at the CORE Group Global Health Practitioner’s Conference

June 1, 2018

Robust health systems help countries recover more rapidly when disaster strikes. And, disaster-prepared communities are more insulated from shocks and emergencies.

JSI helps governments around the world build health systems that are able to  prepare for and respond to humanitarian crises like disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and displacement. We build capacity at all levels of the health system to give workers the skills, tools, and knowledge they need to become more self-reliant and function more effectively. All of which contributes to better health.

Join JSI at the annual CORE Group Global Health Practitioner’s conference in Bethesda, Maryland, June 4-7, 2018, to learn how JSI is integrating humanitarian response and disaster relief in our global health programs.

Stop by Booth #2 and join our sessions to learn more and follow @JSIHealth on Twitter for the latest from the conference.
