Where we Work


View all locations

For almost 30 years, JSI has partnered with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) in Ethiopia to support every level of Ethiopia’s health system in an effort to expand access to health care for all citizens. To date, JSI has managed more than 60 health projects in Ethiopia following our guiding principles: support locally-led initiatives for sustainability, develop innovative and scalable solutions for improved health outcomes, strengthen community engagement and patient-centered services, and build resilience through systems-level support.

Many of our programs strengthen the health system by improving the quality of and access to reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health services. Our USAID Transform: Primary Health Care project (2017-2022) prevented 1.4 million deaths in children under-5 and over 85,000 maternal deaths by improving health provider knowledge, service delivery, treatment access, and more. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) funded three of these projects, the current Improve Primary Health Care Service Delivery project and the recently completed Last 10 Kilometers and Universal Immunization through Improving Family Health Services projects.

JSI has engineered many innovations in digital health and data use that have transformed health information systems to better track, analyze, and create usable data quickly, preventing health crises and improving the efficiency of health care delivery. In Ethiopia, we are working closely with the FMOH to help the country achieve its Information Revolution, the digital transformation of the entire health system. Our USAID Digital Health Activity, BMGF-funded Data Use Partnership and Children’s Investment Fund Foundation-funded Electronic Community Health Information System project work together with the government at all levels to digitize the health system.

Controlling infectious diseases across the world has always been an important aspect of JSI’s work to create healthier outcomes for all. Therefore, we embark on multiple programs to control endemic diseases and smother outbreaks before they become epidemics. In Ethiopia, USAID Tuberculosis Implementation Framework Agreement and BMGF-funded Last 10 Kilometers Risk Communication and Community Engagement Initiative are just some of the programs we manage to fight tuberculosis and COVID-19.

JSI’s presence is ever-growing and working to help foster a healthier Ethiopia. Check out our Ethiopia brochure and scroll down to learn more.
