About the organization

Jhpiego is a nonprofit global leader in the creation and delivery of transformative health care solutions that save lives. In partnership with national governments, health experts and local communities, Jhpiego builds health providers’ skills and develops systems that save lives now and guarantee healthier futures for women and their families. Informed by scientific discovery, technical know-how and best practices, Jhpiego translates decades of experience into moments of care that mean the difference between life and death: the moment a woman gives birth, the moment a midwife helps a newborn to breathe, the moment a nurse screens for cervical cancer with a simple vinegar swab, the moment a community health worker tests a man for HIV and reports that he is virus-free.
