Since the late 1980s, we have worked in these technical areas:

Family Planning and Reproductive Health

Malaria Prevention and Treatment

Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

Our impact

  • Under the Services de Santé à Grand Impact program, 560,717 new family planning users were recorded in 2016 and 2017 in the intervention zones, including 207,781 adopters of long-acting methods.
  • As a result of Jhpiego’s capacity building, the number of health centers offering basic emergency obstetric and newborn care increased from less than 80 to 267, with another 225 health centers having improved management of normal labor and delivery using evidence-based best practices.

Current programs


  • High-Impact Health Services Program (Services de Santé à Grand Impact)

    As a partner to Save the Children on this U.S. Agency for International Development-funded program, Jhpiego provides technical leadership on maternal and newborn health, malaria in pregnancy, family planning (FP) and quality improvement of health care services. Working in four regions and 36 districts, the program is building the capacity of providers to improve antenatal care (including intermittent preventive treatment of malaria) and maternity services (including management of obstetric and newborn complications) at designated health care facilities. To expand access to FP services, Jhpiego is helping to improve service delivery and FP method mix in public health care facilities by increasing the availability of long-acting reversible contraception; these efforts include task shifting by training matrones (or trained birth attendants) to insert contraceptive implants. Capacity building for FP also includes integration of FP services with maternity care to reach women with information about postpartum FP options during antenatal care visits and immediately following delivery. Given comparatively high rates of antenatal care attendance and delivery in health care facilities (as compared to FP consultations), this is a key opportunity to reach women with FP information and methods for healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies. In addition, the program has trained selected providers on management of postabortion care, along with FP counseling and provision of long-acting reversible contraception services, and supports annual national FP campaigns to generate awareness and interest in FP.

  • United Nations Population Fund Seventh Country Program

    In partnership with the United Nations Population Fund in Mali, Jhpiego is supporting capacity development for improved reproductive, maternal and newborn health. The three interventions include: 1) support to the National Health Sciences Training Institute to review and plan for actions to strengthen the midwifery curriculum to ensure that it conforms to accreditation criteria of the West African Health Organization; 2) training and site development to introduce postpartum family planning counseling and services in 10 health care facilities in Segou Region; and 3) training and provision of equipment to a pool of clinical mentors in Sikasso Region so they can effectively provide onsite mentoring visits to health care workers to reinforce their skills in antenatal care, normal delivery and management of maternal and newborn complications.
