Jhpiego is an international, non-profit health organization affiliated with The Johns Hopkins University. For 40 years and in over 155 countries, Jhpiego has worked to prevent the needless deaths of women and their families.

Jhpiego works with health experts, governments and community leaders to provide high-quality health care for their people. Jhpiego develops strategies to help countries care for themselves by training competent health care workers, strengthening health systems and improving delivery of care.

Jhpiego designs innovative, effective and low-cost health care solutions to ensure a level of care for women and their families. These practical, evidence-based interventions are breaking down barriers to high-quality health care for the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Mission and Values

Jhpiego is dedicated to improving the health of women and families in developing countries.

From their origins as technical experts in reproductive, maternal and child health, Jhpiego has grown to embrace new challenges, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, cervical cancer prevention and urban health—reflecting the increasing interconnectedness of global health. They take the latest knowledge in science and technology, apply it to develop practical, low-cost health care solutions and make them available from home to hospital, village to city.

Jhpiego assists countries in confronting and addressing health needs for women and their families. They do this by educating and preparing front-line health workers (doctors, nurses, midwives and community health workers) with evidence-based skills and techniques to deliver quality health care. Jhpiego believes that because many people cannot reach needed services easily and expeditiously, services must be made available to people where they live and in their community.

To meet that need, Jhpiego designs and implements effective, low-cost, hands-on solutions that can be delivered by a community health care worker in a home or by a doctor or a nurse in a hospital. They support and are working toward integrating treatment services and health interventions for different illnesses so women and families can be treated for several conditions in a convenient place at one time.

They build local capacity to strengthen health systems through advocacy, policy development and performance improvement approaches. Jhpiego’s ultimate goal is sustainability—leaving behind a well-prepared network of health care professionals and a strong foundation that they can build upon when Jhpiego move on.
