Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Two American officials, USAID Deputy Inspector General Lisa McClennon and Adrian Mathura of the White House Office of Management and Budget, visited Jordan recently and were very impressed by the positive impact of the Health Systems Strengthening II Project, a five-year Abt Associates-led project in Jordan.
Health Systems Strengthening II (HSS II), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), continues to improve the delivery of family planning, reproductive health, and primary health care services in Jordan in part through hospital renovations. HSS II is strengthening the Jordanian Ministry of Health’s capacity by simultaneously focusing on two of the ministry’s core functions: management and service delivery.
