Health for All: Rise for Our Right

December 11, 2017

Five years after the United Nations unanimously endorsed universal health coverage (UHC) we still have a long way to go until all people—no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they have—can access high-quality health care.

JSI provides governments, local partners, and communities with knowledge, skills, and tools to adapt health systems to meet the needs of individuals and communities. In 2016, we built stronger routine immunization systems in 15 countries, developed stronger supply chains in 14 countries, and trained more than 93,000 health workers and community volunteers in 37 countries.

We support the global movement toward UHC by helping partners improve access to high-quality services, strengthen supply chains, improve policies and governance, and build user-centered health information systems that enable data visibility and promote data use for decision making.
