Jordan country page quote

Abt is supporting Jordan’s Ministry of Health in taking next steps towards eliminating preventable maternal deaths and supporting the well-being of families and communities. This was made possible by building on the momentum established by predecessor Abt-led projects that began the Safe Motherhood journey over a decade ago and laid the foundation for Abt’s current work.

Expanding Our Impact

Abt has successfully implemented programs in Jordan for the past 19 years. Abt’s health footprint includes improving the quality of primary health care in the country, upgrading health facilities, building health management information systems, saving lives through low-cost technology, and engaging and empowering communities through social and behavior change communication, advocacy, and policy initiatives.

The five-year Abt-led USAID Jordan Communication, Advocacy, and Policy Activity’s (2014-2019) aim is to increase the use and continuation of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health, including nutrition, services as safe, effective, and acceptable ways to ensure a healthy family, build a sustainable community, and maintain a secure Jordan. The five-year Abt-led USAID Health Service Delivery (2016-2021) improves health outcomes for women of reproductive age and children under the age of five, including Syrian refugees living in Jordanian host communities, through increasing access to and improving the quality of integrated reproductive, maternal, neonatal, and child health services, including nutrition, non-communicable diseases and gender-based violence.

The neonatal survival rate increased from 25 to 89 percent as a result of a program for newborns suffering from respiratory problems developed by the Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) II Bridge project.
