Sustainable improvements to health outcomes depend on the ability of local systems and stakeholders – individuals, communities, civil society, governments, and the private sector – to provide care and services. Developing their capacity is at the core of JSI’s work.
JSI’s Center for Capacity Development builds strong relationships with partners to promote accountability, transparency, and local ownership. Our aim is to develop stronger organizations—and thus a stronger health system—by enabling organizations to enhance the knowledge and skills of its workforce, strengthen its processes, systems, and programs, develop partnerships, and achieve results.
Grants and other alternative financing (e.g., performance-based financing) are often provided to help local organizations and new implementing partners to scale-up services. We have a long history of building capacity so stakeholders can understand and change local systems, and manage and report on the impact of the funds they receive and mobilize their own resources.
