JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) is a global nonprofit dedicated to improving the health of individuals and communities throughout the world. Its fundamental goal is to ensure that all individuals can live their best and healthiest lives, regardless of age or circumstances. The JSI family of global agencies includes the Partnership for Supply Chain Management (PFSCM), as well as independent JSI entities in Kenya, Zambia, and India.

Founded in 1978, JSI collaborates with government agencies, the private sector, and local nonprofit and civil society organizations to identify and implement solutions to the most pressing public health and education challenges. These partnerships strengthen the capacity of individuals and organizations; improve the quality, accessibility, sustainability and equity of health systems and lead to better health outcomes.

JSI now has more than 3,500 colleagues working across 8 offices in the United States and 46 countries around the world. Staff include researchers, consultants, technologists, project managers, and physicians who provide innovative technical assistance and capacity-building—through both large-scale implementation projects and smaller consulting projects—across public health, health systems, and education.
