Together for Health
JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. successfully implemented the Together for Health for the U.S. Agency for International Development from 2005 to 2011. For further information on project activites, visit the TfH page on jsi.com.
The Together for Health project seeks to improve the health of women, men, and families in Ukraine by helping people adopt modern family planning and reproductive health practices that will improve their lives, promote family health and reduce levels of abortions. It is fostering a shift from a heavy reliance on abortion for birth control to modern methods of contraception, and is contributing to a reduction in sexually transmitted infections.
Together for Health is a six-year project (2005-2011) made possible through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It is implemented by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. in partnership with the Academy for Educational Development and the Harvard School of Public Health. Ukrainian partners include the Ministry of Health and the State Service for Youth and Sport of Ukraine, oblast health departments and other oblast-level departments, academic institutions, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), workplace sites, and other donors and projects. Public-private partnerships, particularly with pharmaceutical producers, are a special priority, to make contraceptives more accessible and to educate the public about contraception.
