Where We Work

In 2011, JSI was awarded a learning grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop an approach to strengthen routine immunization using Quality Improvement (QI) tools in three woredas (districts).

Utilizing findings from these three woredas, UI-FHS expanded its work from 2014-2018 to over 100 woredas in six regions of Ethiopia (highlighted in yellow below) — Afar, Benishangul-Gumuz, Gambella, Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples (SNNP), Somali, and Tigray.

With a special focus on equity and quality, UI-FHS is concentrating its technical support to the Developing Regional States of Afar, Benishangul-Gumuz, Gambella, and Somali from 2018 to 2020.
