Population Services International (PSI)

Population Services International PSI is a global health organization dedicated to improving the health of people in the developing world by focusing on serious challenges like a lack of family planning, HIV/AIDS, barriers to maternal health, and the greatest threats to children under five, including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition. A hallmark of PSI is a commitment to the principle that health services and products are most effective when they are accompanied by robust communications and distribution efforts that help ensure wide acceptance and proper use. In each of its platforms, PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health and local organizations – creating health solutions that are built to last. HISTORY PSI was founded in 1970 to improve reproductive health using commercial marketing strategies. For its first 15 years, PSI worked mostly in family planning (hence the name Population Services International). In 1985, it started promoting oral rehydration therapy. PSI’s first HIV prevention project — which promoted abstinence, fidelity and condoms — began in 1988. PSI added malaria and safe water to its portfolio in the 1990s and tuberculosis in 2004. HEALTH IMPACT PSI has an uncompromising focus on measurable health impact and measures its effect on disease and death much like a for-profit measures its profits. In 2010 alone, PSI helped prevent approximately 29 million malaria episodes and 300,000 malaria deaths; 4 million unintended pregnancies; 4 million cases of diarrhea; and 180,000 new HIV infections. PROGRAM LOCATION World headquarters in Washington, D.C., presence in 67 countries, European office in Amsterdam. PEOPLE More than 8,000 staff at PSI affiliates work in 67 countries. PSI's expatriate staff is about 1% of the overall workforce. Support services and advocacy are provided by staff in Washington, D.C., and Amsterdam, Netherlands. PSI’S MISSION PSI makes it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services. PSI’S VALUES Measurement: Evidence, research, metrics and evaluation inform their choices. Pragmatism: They strive for excellence, but useful and timely are better than perfect. Honesty: They act with integrity, share what they achieve, and admit when they fail. Collaboration: Active partnering drives impact. Trust: They have confidence in their people to make good decisions. Commitment: They build local capacity and programs that last. DONORS Major donors include the governments of the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; United Nations agencies; private foundations; corporations and individuals. DONATIONS Population Services International (PSI) is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit organization, which means your contributions are tax-deductible to the limits of applicable laws.
