Sustainable improvements to health outcomes depend on the ability of local providers, organizations—public and private, and both nonprofit and for profit—and governments 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 and individuals to maximize their impact to fulfill their missions. We focus on mentoring partners’ to maturity while ensuring that health targets are achieved by combining technical support and organizational strengthening with the application of tools, assessments, and training.
Grants and other alternative financing (e.g., performance-based financing) are often provided to help local NGOs and new implementing partners to scale-up services. We have a long history of building capacity so groups can fit within their larger health system, and manage and report on the impact of the funds they receive and mobilize their own resources.
