JSI’s first project in Rwanda, USAID’s Resources for Child Health, was designed to institutionalize immunization practices and improve care for acute respiratory infections. JSI also provided critical support to the country’s under the Family Planning Service Extension and Technical Support Project.
In early 2000, JSI expanded its in-country partnerships to include work in reproductive and maternal health, HIV, and malaria prevention. We also built local NGO technical service capacity through the New Partners Initiative projects, funded by USAID and CDC. In more recent years, we have supported maternal and child health and early childhood nutrition in the country.
