Pakistan

Jhpiego has been working in Pakistan since 1997, when it provided technical assistance under a series of maternal and reproductive health projects funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Currently, Jhpiego is working on the following initiatives in Pakistan:

  • Maternal and Child Health Program, Component 2a: Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) Services: This USAID-funded project aims to increase access to MNCH services for mothers and children in Sindh Province by: 1) building the capacity of health workers to deliver high-quality family planning and MNCH services, 2) improving the quality and coverage of those health services, and 3) strengthening public-private partnerships.
  • Sukh: Under this four-year project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Aman Foundation, Jhpiego is working with the public sector to offer a range of modern family planning services, as well as high-quality postpartum family planning and postabortion care/postabortion family planning services in Karachi.
  • Safe Childbirth Checklist Study: With funding from the German international aid group GIZ, Jhpiego is conducting a study to test the hypothesis that the World Health Organization’s Safe Childbirth Checklist, combined with a comprehensive, integrated maternal and newborn health training package, will contribute to longer-term gains in improved skills retention by primary health care facility staff and community midwives.
