Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services that range from mosquito nets to condoms to HIV testing.
There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
A branch of PSI Washington, PSI/Mali started in 2001 using commercial marketing strategies for improving reproductive health and child survival, and to reduce new HIV infections. Since then, PSI/Mali has implemented several programs to improve health in malaria, family planning, cervical cancer, sanitation, neglected tropical diseases, and female genital cutting (FGC). We are a group of highly dedicated individuals who are proud to work through our programs and national health strategies to provide quality health services to the Malian people.
The role of PSI/Mali’s Program Management Unit (PMU) is to ensure that the Global Fund Malaria Grant objectives are achieved and project implementation is in compliance with donor rules and regulations including risk mitigation measures such as the application of a Limited Cash Policy (LCP). PSI/Mali PMU coordinates with PSI Mali functional departments, our four regional offices in Kayes, Segou, Sikasso and Mopti, and the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), to coordinate and facilitate the execution of malaria control activities. In coordination with the PSI Mali Malaria Technical Department, PMU works to execute the NMCP strategic plan for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of malaria through health systems strengthening, monitoring and evaluation, cascade trainings, behavior change communication, quality assurance and distribution of health products (LLIN, ACT and SP+AQ).
