USAID Jalin - Communications Officer

The USAID Jalin Project

Scope of Work

Communication Officer

The USAID Jalin Project is a five-year initiative implemented by DAI Global, LLC and its consortium of partners – IntraHealth, Vital Strategies, and Market Share Associates – to work with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Government of Indonesia (GOI), Ministry of Health (MOH) towards the following results:

1)     Improved maternal and newborn health (MNH) quality of care in public and private, and primary and secondary facilities, at scale; and

2)     Improved efficiency and effectiveness of the emergency referral system at community and facility levels, at scale.

Jalin was initiated in September 2017 and is aimed at contributing to national objectives to accelerate reduction of maternal and newborn mortality. Indonesia’s maternal and newborn mortality rates are among the highest in the region and have stagnated in recent years. With rates far above Indonesia’s Sustainable Development Goals targets, the President of Indonesia has recently reconfirmed that reducing maternal and newborn mortality is a top priority for the GOI.

USAID Jalin is rigorously focused on addressing the main causes of maternal and newborn deaths—in close collaboration with key stakeholders and in alignment with GOI priorities. The Project is currently working in six provinces in partnership with the MOH, provincial and district health offices, local government, professional organizations, health service providers, civil society, and the private sector. Project activities are focused on providing national level support for the government’s MNH priorities, evidence generation, and implementation of regional level local solutions.
