Download this publicationIn 2010, Pakistan decentralized its health system, giving provinces a much greater role in setting health sector strategies, policies, and financing. USAID’s Maternal and Child Health Program was developed to support the Pakistani government and Sindh province, in particular, through the initial process of decentralization. The JSI-implemented HSS Component of USAID's Maternal and Child Health Program worked at all levels of government to make human and financial resources available at federal, provincial, and district levels.

This end-of-project slide doc presents the results of the program and highlights how the JSI team strengthened systems for improved accountability and transparency, improved access to actionable health data, and invested in human resources for health. Included are highlights on health areas including routine immunization and the introduction of chlorhexidine.
