The Government of Jordan works to continuously improve the quality of public health services and ensure their availability and accessibility. To support these efforts, our work focuses on achieving stronger and more efficient medicines regulatory processes in the country and supporting efforts to fight the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance.
Vaccine Introduction for COVID-19
Making decisions on COVID-19 vaccine options and introduction, deployment, and monitoring poses complex challenges to governments, including in the areas of financing, regulatory support, supply chain management, safety surveillance, and monitoring. In Jordan, in collaboration with the USAID mission and other development partners, the USAID MTaPS Program, is working with the Ministry of Health on an emergency strategy to improve vaccine financing and procurement, streamline budgeting and payment systems, and improve regulatory procedures to speed up vaccine registration and ensure product quality. Our programmatic work also supported the development of a vaccine introduction plan to ensure equitable allocation of the vaccine. Finally, we are helping to design and implement an advocacy, communication, and social mobilization campaign to help build trust in the new vaccine among communities and the health providers who serve them.
In Jordan, our work focuses on strengthening infection prevention and control capacity at the central and health facility levels; strengthening the capacity of the national multisectoral steering committee for antimicrobial resistance to coordinate and monitor the implementation of the National Action Plan on AMR; and strengthening Jordan’s antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) policy and practice at the national and health facility levels.
