JSI is strengthening Nepal’s health system to increase access to lifesaving services and commodities that improve the health and nutrition women, children, and communities. There are many approaches to designing and implementing community health service delivery systems to achieve universal health coverage, and in particular to reach the most vulnerable populations.
For almost 40 years JSI has collaborated with the government, and local and international partners to improve policy and build leadership and management capacity to improve service delivery, increase access to health commodities, find new approaches to community-based care, and increase community participation.
Our partnership has led to stronger systems, policies, and funding that have increased access to quality maternal and child health & nutrition services and commodities. JSI’s recent systems strengthening work under the USAID SPRING Nutrition project led to changes in the most recent multi-sector nutrition policy and provided practical recommendations on how to effectively budget for nutrition at the national and district levels. In 2020, the USAID Building Healthy Cities project began its support for the rollout and operationalization of the Kathmandu Valley Air Quality Action Plan, with a focus on multi-sector engagement, data driven learning and increasing community participation.
JSI has implemented projects in the following technical areas:
After the devastating 2015 earthquake, JSI collaborated with groups working on education, WASH, and nutrition to provide immediate disaster relief for disadvantaged communities, homeless families, and remote villages.
