Who we are
With over 45 years of experience, working in over 60 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer empowered healthcare.
There are over 8,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurial development professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. All with unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do.
The Consumer’s Market for Family Planning (CM4FP) will be a new research project designed to provide relevant, high quality evidence on the consumer’s perception of the family planning market in two countries. The design of CM4FP draws on the designs of the FPwatch project for family planning and the ACTwatch project for malaria (http://www.actwatch.info/). The project will collect longitudinal data from all outlets in selected project areas, four rounds of data from women living in the project areas via household-based surveys, and data from clients exiting facilities and outlets in the project areas via client exit surveys. The outlet surveys will collect information about family planning commodity and service delivery availability, price, and market share and the household surveys will collect information from the consumer on family planning use, access, and perception of the supply market to explore local supply and demand interaction. The approach to collecting data from all outlets in the project areas (via a census-based approach) will also be compared to the approaches employed by other large-scale surveys such as PMA2020 and the DHS.
PSI seeks a qualified candidate to fill the role of a Principal Investigator for the CM4FP research project.
The CM4FP Principal Investigator will be based in Washington DC and will report to the RH Research Advisor. Approximately 30% international travel is anticipated during the first year.
