Senegal Integrated Service Delivery and Healthy Behaviors Project (ISD-HB)
The "Integrated Health Services and Healthy Behaviors (ISD-HB)â€ project, also known as Neema, supports the Government of Senegal in its efforts to ensure that health services are improved in a sustainable manner and used effectively to reduce maternal, neonatal and child mortality and morbidity rates and contribute to the emergence of an AIDS-free generation. Implemented as part of USAID's Health Program 2016-2021, the Neema project is implemented by a consortium of NGOs led by IntraHealth International. The project combines support for service delivery in public health structures, community health system strengthening, the design, implementation of integrated communication strategies for social and behavior change (SBCC), research, monitoring and evaluation in priority health areas. The Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) leads the SBCC component of the Neema project and will be hosting the student in the project office in Dakar.
CCP is also leading a new, 18-month USAID Global Health Security Agenda project to build Senegal's capacity on risk communication for priority zoonotic diseases.
