PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door.

    With the generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), PSI is implementing A360, an innovative investment with a consortium of partners including the Society for Family Health/Nigeria (SFH/Nigeria), Triggerise, the Center on the Developing Adolescent from the University of California, Berkeley, and IDEO.org. The project is working with adolescents, young people, parents, community members, providers, and policy makers in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania to design scalable, cost-effective models aimed at increasing voluntary, modern contraceptive use among adolescent girls aged 15-19. The project is high profile and considered to be both Gates’ and CIFF’s “flagship” adolescent investments.
