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 be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 7,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a motley group of entrepreneurs and professionals with a diverse range of backgrounds all the way from the medical industry to the music business, all with unique skills we bring to the job.
Partner with us!
Launched in January 2016, Adolescents 360 (A360) is a four-and-a-half year project aimed to increase access to and uptake of voluntary modern contraception among adolescent girls (15-19 years old) in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania. PSI leads A360 with a core consortium of partners that brings together leading experts in public health, social marketing, human-centered design, developmental science, and cultural anthropology.
Our hypothesis is that through a fusion of these disciplines, combined with meaningful engagement of young people in all phases of the project, we will catalyze a series of novel approaches to program design and delivery that can be replicated and scaled by partners and governments around the world.
A360 is seeking a health economist to review its current approach to calculating cost- effectiveness and make recommendations to A360.
