Mission and Values
Mission—Jhpiego enhances the health and saves the lives of women and families in limited-resource settings. For nearly four decades, we have put evidence-based health innovations into everyday practice to overcome barriers to high-quality health care services for the world’s most vulnerable populations. From our origins as technical experts in reproductive, maternal and child health, Jhpiego has grown to embrace new challenges, including HIV/AIDS, malaria and cervical cancer prevention—reflecting the increasing interconnectedness of global health.
Vision—Jhpiego empowers front-line health workers by designing and implementing effective, low cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with organizations from the community to the national level, building sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
Jhpiego’s program management strategy recognizes the technical complexity and geographical, cultural, socio-economic and political diversity among our programs. We develop global program initiatives and technical interventions that can be adapted for country-specific applications. In support of this field-driven philosophy, Jhpiego uses a decentralized organizational structure that consists of a global “delivery system” designed to implement the entire portfolio of Jhpiego awards with assistance from key technical, programmatic and administrative staff.
