Putting Our Systems Approach into Practice
December 12, 2018
To achieve universal health coverage by 2030, countries will need strong, resilient health systems that can deliver affordable, high-quality health services. JSI is working in countries as diverse as Ethiopia, Liberia, and Pakistan to help our partners end preventable child and maternal deaths, foster an AIDS-free generation, protect communities against infectious disease, and respond to emerging public health needs. Keep reading to find out how we’re building strong health systems that can serve all people.
Through the USAID-funded Advancing Partners & Communities’ Ebola Transmission Prevention & Survivor Services program JSI is training health workers to provide better services. The program also connects Ebola survivors with the specialty care they need.
By convening urban stakeholders across multiple sectors and fostering strong community and private-sector involvement in primary care and community health service delivery, the USAID-funded Strengthening Ethiopia's Urban Health Program has contributed to building a responsive and resilient health system that can meet the evolving needs of urban Ethiopians.
Through targeted technical assistance and peer-to-peer learning, JSI is strengthening the capacity of 10 local organizations in Ghana to reach key populations with essential HIV services.
We know that expanding access to good health data—and getting people to use them—is a critical piece of the puzzle. Earlier this year, Nabeela Ali, JSI country representative for Pakistan spoke to JSI technical advisor Nancy Brady about the results from the JSI-implemented Health Systems Strengthening Component of USAID’s Maternal and Child Health Program on our Voices of Public Health Podcast series.
