Jhpiego is an international, nonprofit health organization affiliated with The Johns Hopkins University. For 40 years and in more than 155 countries, Jhpiego has been committed to preventing the needless deaths of women and their families. Health care for women and children aligns with the MurthyNAYAK Foundation’s mission, which is why we are long-time partners with Jhpiego.
Jhpiego works with health experts, governments and community leaders to provide high-quality health care for their people. Jhpiego develops strategies to help countries create a culture of care for themselves by training competent health care workers, strengthening health care systems, and improving delivery of care. Innovative, effective, and low-cost health care solutions are designed to ensure a high 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 its origins as technical experts in reproductive, maternal, and child health, Jhpiego has evolved to embrace new challenges, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, and cervical cancer prevention and urban health – reflecting the increasing interconnectedness of global health. Jhpiego takes the latest advances in science and technology, applies that knowledge to develop practical, low-cost health care solutions, and makes them available from home to hospital, village to city.
Jhpiego assists countries confronting and addressing health needs for women and their families. Jhpiego accomplishes this by educating and preparing frontline 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, health care should be mobile and made available to people where they live and in their communities.
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. Jhpiego supports and works to develop integrated treatment services and health interventions for a variety of illnesses, so women and families can be treated for several conditions in a convenient place at one time.
