Since the beginning of the epidemic, JSI has been committed to ending HIV and promoting equitable access to prevention and care services. We collaborate with organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate programs across the care continuum, and to improve health service delivery for people who live with HIV and syndemics, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs), viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, and substance misuse. The core of our work is capacity development so that upon completion, our projects leave stronger systems, organizations, and people.
We bring a racial justice and health equity lens to all of our work, as well as a commitment to cultural humility. Our staff includes individuals with lived experience, as well as clinicians and experts in health systems transformation, data and evaluation, quality improvement, policy development, community engagement, workforce development, and program implementation. We are dedicated to the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and to the success of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative.
For more than 30 years, we have fostered respectful and long-term partnerships with federal agencies, health departments, community-based organizations (CBOs), coalitions, health centers, and hospitals to improve access to health and social services for underserved communities nationwide.
We have the expertise to:
- Deliver high-quality training and technical assistance to help CBOs, health centers, health departments, and HIV planning groups across the U.S. implement and sustain coordinated HIV and infectious disease services
- Leverage progress in science, data, and health care delivery to address persistent health disparities
- Evaluate and improve health care systems in the context of an evolving policy landscape
- Use digital channels and tools to promote prevention and treatment adherence and to decrease stigma
- Assess and build provider capacity to prevent and control infectious disease in long-term care and health care facilities
