Nepal: Family Health Project
Jhpiego is providing technical assistance under the Nepal Family Health Project (NHFP), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Jhpiego’s role under the NHFP is to lead efforts to improve the quality of family planning and maternal and child health services at thousands of health care facilities. Specifically, Jhpiego is: 1) strengthening and decentralizing in-service clinical training system capacity at the national, regional and district levels; 2) strengthening curricula, faculty and teaching sites for pre-service education of auxiliary nurse midwives; 3) applying a performance improvement approach to improving quality of services; and 4) supporting other training-related activities such as training site assessments and training materials updates. Jhpiego is a subcontractor to John Snow, Inc., and other partners on the project include: EngenderHealth, Save the Children, World Education Inc. and several local partners including government bodies.
For nearly 40 years, Jhpiego, (pronounced "ja-pie-go"), has empowered front-line health workers by designing and implementing simple, low-cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with community- to national-level organizations to build sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy and guidelines development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
