The USAID Jalin Project - Regional Administrator (Banten)

The USAID Jalin Project
Scope of Work
Regional Administrator


The USAID Jalin Project (hereafter referred to as “Jalin” or the “Project”) is a five-year initiative implemented by DAI Global, LLC and its consortium of partners – IntraHealth, Vital Strategies, and Market Share Associates. The overall goal of Jalin is to contribute to national goals to accelerate maternal and newborn mortality reduction. Indonesia has these national goals, and they have been recently reconfirmed at Presidential level, because the maternal and neonatal mortality rates are among the highest in the region, they are far above the Sustainable Development Goals targets; and they have stagnated in recent years. The overarching problem that Jalin is striving to solve is: the quality of care accessible to mothers and newborns is uneven across the country as seen in both public and private facilities at both primary and secondary level of care

USAID Jalin aims to contribute to national goals to reduce maternal and newborn mortality through improvements in MNH quality of care in public and private, primary and secondary facilities at scale; and through improvements in the efficiency and effectiveness of emergency referral systems at community and facility level at scale. To achieve these high level results, Jalin will be working to support a) sustained improvements in practice by clinical hospital teams in treating obstetric and newborn complications b) stakeholder strategies that are more focused on the main causes of maternal and neonatal death c) sustained improvements in quality of care by private midwives d) integrated ICT referral platforms that are scaled e) improved referral networks that are scaled.
