JSI has worked in Yemen since 1988, managing public health programs focusing on improving child health and routine immunization, strengthening the supply chain, and improving reproductive, maternal, and newborn health.
JSI currently manages the USAID-supported Systems, Health, and Resiliency Project (SHARP), which is working to strengthen the health system and improve priority health services in three governorates with an emphasis on reproductive, maternal, newborn, child health, and nutrition.
Previously, JSI led the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program in Yemen (2014-2016), supporting an integrated approach that spanned 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 from 2011-2015), JSI and the Ministry of Public Health and Population co-developed a reproductive health commodity security road which redesigned the supply chain system to ensure continuous availability of commodities and helped strengthen 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 lasting legacy of skilled managers.
