SUMMARY

The Community Capacity for Health Program strengthens the capacity of the local public health system to manage community health activities and support community health volunteers. Known locally as Mahefa Miaraka, Malagasy for ‘powerful together,’ the project’s vision is one of thriving families and communities who access sustained, high-quality health services at community and facility levels. Specifically, the program contributes to the Government of Madagascar’s plan to reduce maternal, child, and newborn mortality and morbidity.

The program works in seven remote regions in north and west Madagascar: Analanjirofo, SAVA, DIANA, Sofia, Boeny Melaky, and Menabe. It builds on the work of the former USAID-funded and JSI-managed Community-Based Integrated Health program. During the 2017 plague outbreak that killed over 200 people, the project worked closely with the government to develop a public health response.

Community Capacity for Health is funded by USAID and implemented by JSI in partnership with FHI 360, Transaid, and Action Socio-sanitaire Organization Secours of Madagascar. CCP has an active Facebook page with more information and photos.
