JSI has worked in Uganda for more than thirty years, building the capacity of the public, private, and NGO sectors and managing public health programs focusing on strengthening Uganda’s health system.
JSI currently implements the USAID-supported Regional Health Integration to Enhance Services-North, Lango (RHITES-N, Lango) project in Northern Uganda, which is strengthening the health system in the Lango sub-region to improve access and availability of high-quality health services for individuals and their families. The district-led and community-focused project works to provide integrated health services including HIV, tuberculosis, maternal, newborn and child health, family planning, malaria, nutrition, and water and sanitation.
Through the USAID-supported SPRING global nutrition program, JSI contributed to a reduction in stunting and anemia and improved nutrition outcomes in Uganda’s underserved South West region.
JSI also manages projects that are focused on strengthening routine immunization systems, combating malaria through training in indoor residual spraying (IRS) of insecticide, and, while leading Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) activities in Uganda, maintaining a strong focus on sustainable scale up, strengthening health systems to deliver high-impact services with increased coverage over time.
