Jhpiego is an international, non-profit health organisation affiliated with The John Hopkins University. Since its founding in 1974, Jhpiego’s focus has been to improve the health of women and families in developing countries by working with health experts, governments and community leaders to provide high quality health care. Currently Jhpiego is working with health experts, governments and community leaders to improve health care in about 40 countries across Africa and Asia.

In 2009, the Foundation provided a grant of £25,000 to support Jhpiego’s work in the urban slum communities of Viwandani and Korogocho in Nairobi.  The Foundation’s grant allowed an existing community-led health programme to be expanded to deliver activities which improved sanitation, hygiene and waste conditions.  In 2011 and 2013 we provided further support of £60,000 and £120,000 to continue work for a further four years in these two communities and to expand the programme to the neighbouring slum population of Mathare. To achieve this Jhpiego will be continuing the provision of community hygiene and sanitation education, and supporting the development of waste disposal enterprises and family planning and reproductive health activities. Focussing on highly populated slum communities has enabled Jhpiego to reach large numbers of people in a community that receives less support from other NGOs than in the more prominent Kibera slum. Jhpiego’s enterprise-model has also shown itself to be successful through the number of income-generating activities that have continued to run with only minimal intervention from the organisation.
