JSI has been working to strengthen health services and systems in Zambia since the mid-1980s. JSI is the government of Zambia’s lead partner in strengthening supply chain systems for HIV-related health commodities.
Currently, through the USAID DISCOVER-Health project, JSI is working as strategic partner to the government to ensure equitable access to high quality services and products related to HIV, maternal, newborn, and child health, family planning, and reproductive health. Additionally, the USAID SAFE: Supporting an AIDS-Free Era Program is also working with the government to reduce HIV mortality, morbidity, and transmission, while improving nutrition outcomes and family planning integration, in three provinces with the highest burdens of HIV.
Zambia is also home to JSH, an indigenous company legally registered in Zambia and JSI affiliate. The mission of JSH is to improve the health of individuals and communities in Zambia through provision of public health and consultation services and research.
JSH runs the USAID Electronic Supply Chain Management Information System (eSCMIS) project, with JSI as a partner. eSCMIS is creating an efficient health supply chain using a next-generation logistics management information system to equip the Government to independently make data-driven supply chain decisions.
