The USAID Population, Health and Environment (PHE) Integration Activity in Madagascar (2017-2019) was led by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. under the USAID Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) Project and USAID’s Community Capacity for Health Program. The PHE Integration Activity in Madagascar had the objective of studying, documenting, and promoting the effective integration of PHE activities with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, the Ministry of Public Health, and the Ministry of Population, Social Protection and Promotion of Women, and other stakeholders in Madagascar. The PHE Integration Activity ended in 2019, however the USAID Community Capacity for Health Program in Madagascar continued family planning, child health and monitoring and evaluation work in the same geographic areas.

The USAID Community Capacity for Health Program—known in Madagascar as Mahefa Miaraka—was a five-year (2016–2021) community-based integrated health program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The Program was a collaborative effort among the Ministry of Public Health, USAID, and JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. Mahefa Miaraka provided tools and capacity-building training to approximately 10,000 community health volunteers who provided basic maternal health, child health, and family planning services to their local communities.

As part of JSI’s Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) Integration Activity, policymakers and program implementers learned how community members perceive and participate in community-based health services. JSI, in collaboration with a local NGO Ny Tanintsika, used the partnership model to introduce communities to high impact approaches that can support income generation activities to reduce human pressure on the forest corridor and water. This video provides beautiful footage and scenery of the forest corridor of Fandriana Vondrozo in Madagascar and the interviews and perspectives from the community members in the village of Ambilo. The video is in Malagasy with English subtitles.
