JSI is dedicated to improving people’s lives globally through greater health, education, and socioeconomic equity for individuals and communities.

With 6.7 million people, the Kyrgyz Republic is the fourth-most populous country in Central Asia. JSI has partnered with the Kyrgyz Republic for more than 30 years, implementing programs to strengthen the country’s health system to improve services—and ultimately, people’s lives. JSI combines best practices, public health expertise, and practical knowledge to work with the government and local partners in five areas: health systems strengthening; global health security; localization; data and health information systems; and climate and urban health.

Health Systems Strengthening

Strong health systems are necessary for people to access high-quality health care. They also align resources required for sustainable improvements in health and economic growth. JSI contributes to USAID’s vision of supporting the government of Kyrgyzstan to lead, design, manage, and monitor a comprehensive and high-quality tuberculosis (TB) service system, with the active involvement of civil society and communities to support and complement these efforts.

Global Health Security

The Kyrgyz Republic is one of the top 30 countries globally with the highest burden of multi-drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB). Treatment interruption, in addition to stigma and discrimination, is among the most significant challenges to TB care. JSI aims to strengthen the government’s ability to apply a collaborative, data-driven, people-centered approach to diagnose, treat, and cure people who have DR-TB.

Climate and Urban Health

Bishkek is home to approximately 1.1 million people, who comprise 42 percent of the country’s urban population. While urbanization can have health and economic benefits, rapid and unplanned urbanization has many social and environmental consequences, especially for communities that are economically and socially marginalized. JSI, with the government and local partners, co-design activities that sustain livable environments amidst climate change.
