Responding to COVID-19

Strengthening Health Systems to Respond to Pandemics

We are helping countries, states, public health agencies, and facilities deliver services that meet people’s needs and are resilient enough to withstand shocks, such as that of COVID-19.

We are committed to continuing our work to strengthen health systems and improve services—and ultimately, people’s health. During this crisis, we are helping clients across the globe through preparedness planning, infection prevention, and supply procurement and supply-chain management to maintain the flow of medicines, supplies, and services.  JSI is also at the forefront of COVID vaccine introduction, helping governments to develop the systems to manage the vaccine process, training providers in product management and delivery, and coordinating information sharing with the public and private sectors, and traditional leadership to sensitize communities.
