As per the Organization Scale
John Snow, Inc. and our nonprofit, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., (JSI) are public health management consulting and research organizations dedicated to improving the health of individuals and communities throughout the world.
JSI implements the Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation (AIDSFree) Project.
AIDSFree is funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under a five-year cooperative agreement.
In Ethiopia, AIDSFree supports the partnership between the Government of Ethiopia and PEPFAR to control the country’s HIV epidemic by addressing the structural barriers that inhibit the timely availability of quality logistics data for HIV commodities.
AIDSFree Ethiopia focuses on strengthening the logistics management information system (LMIS) for the public-sector health care supply chain.
JSI also implements a grant on behalf of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) that provides technical assistance to build capacity and systems for the management of vaccines and related products within the Pharmaceuticals Fund and Supply Agency (PFSA).
This grant builds on JSI’s immunization program experience, the success of the Vaccine Supply Chain Transition contract, and 20 years of experience in Ethiopia in health care supply chain technical assistance to the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and PFSA.
These programs focus on supply chain system strengthening by improving the visibility and use of quality, timely logistics data for decision-making.
Enhancing data visibility and data usage will expand commodity availability, increase supply chain efficiency, improve health outcomes in Ethiopia, and build sustainability of the health system.
