Since 1988, JSI has implemented projects in Yemen that focus on enhancing child health, routine immunization, supply chain management, and reproductive, maternal, and newborn health programs.
JSI manages the Strengthening Healthcare Access project, a five-year (2023–2028) USAID-funded initiative aimed at enhancing access to and equitable use of evidence-based maternal, newborn, and child health; nutrition; family planning; and reproductive health (MNCHN/FP/RH) services in Yemen. This is a follow-on of the USAID-supported Systems, Health, and Resiliency Project (SHARP), which worked to strengthen the health system and improve priority health services with an emphasis on reproductive, maternal, newborn, child health, and nutrition, in three governorates.
JSI led the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program in Yemen (2014–2016), which supported an integrated approach to reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition. The program improved health services from pre-pregnancy through childhood and across the continuum of care from households and communities to health facilities.
Through the DELIVER PROJECT (in Yemen 2011–2015), JSI and the Ministry of Public Health and Population co-developed a reproductive health commodity security roadmap that redesigned the supply chain system to ensure continuous availability of commodities and strengthened the environment for reproductive health commodity security. Read the report, Yemen: Mapping the Procurement Process for Family Planning and Reproductive Health Commodities. JSI also built the capacity of more than 1,750 health workers across nine governorates in supply chain management, leaving a legacy of skilled managers.
