Who we are
With over 45 years of experience, working in over 60 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading nonprofit 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 7,000 “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 Women’s Health Project (WHP) leads a large and dynamic project, implemented in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. The goal of the Women's Health Project is to increase access to safe abortion services for all women who need them and to increase the use of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs).
We are looking for a full-time intern (40 hours/week) to support the Women’s Health Project with overall day-to-day operations and provide administrative and knowledge management support the Family Planning and Reproductive Health (FP/RH) department (estimated 10%).

What are we looking for?
The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s corporate values:
Measurement: You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.
Pragmatism: You’ll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won’t be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect.
Honesty: You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it’s the only way you’ll learn and improve.
Collaboration: You’ll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won’t succeed.
Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt
Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin
