Jhpiego began working in Madagascar in 2003, addressing the problem of malaria in pregnancy under the ACCESS Program. With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Jhpiego/ACCESS assisted the Ministry of Health and Family Planning through 2009 to update and implement a new national malaria policy and improve the quality of service delivery for malaria in pregnancy. Jhpiego has also partnered with Chemonics International under the SantéNet Project, and with PSI under the Women’s Health Project.
Currently, Jhpiego is implementing a USAID-funded program in Madagascar through the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP). With MCHIP, USAID/Madagascar seeks to contribute to a reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality by improving management of high-risk pregnancies, complicated deliveries and neonatal infections.
