Who we are
Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We are a diverse group of over 5,000 entrepreneurial development professionals located in over 40 countries committed to making it easier for all people to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire. PSI is using its global presence and 50+ years of experience to help reimagine healthcare. We are working to shape market systems, shift policy and funding, and strengthen global capacity to better support consumer empowered healthcare.
Zimbabwe: PSI has established a new branch office in Zimbabwe after supporting the 23 year old PSI/Zimbabwe Trust – now renamed Population Solutions for Health – to deconsolidate and achieve full financial and operational independence as a deeply rooted Zimbabwean local entity. The new PSI branch office will remain with prime award responsibility across multiple existing funding streams with PEPFAR/USAID, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Sweden through to the completion of those investments, with PSH moving into an independent subpartner role leading service delivery in HIV and SRHR programming, VMMC sustainability, and client centered campaigns to address social norms in Zimbabwe. While PSH will lead implementation in Zimbabwe, PSI has an essential strategic and technical role to play in providing light touch TA to the mixed health system in the areas of insight gathering and application for improved consumer-centered programming, digital health and monitoring, and adaptive implementation and learning, including support for world class documentation and dissemination of the lessons learned, best practices, approaches and tools developed to catalyze communities of practice in Zimbabwe and beyond. PSI has a role to play in implementation areas unique to the international organization, such as independent fundholding under results based financing of HIV service delivery and safe abortion advocacy, education and communications. The high capacity, deeply rooted PSI – PSH partnership has tremendous potential to deliver together on the vision of achieving consumer powered health care through shaping mixed health systems, shifting policy and funding, and strengthening capacity within the Zimbabwe mixed health system and beyond.
Kenya: PSI implements cutting edge programming in Kenya to improve women’s access to vital reproductive health services, WASH, Malaria, HIV prevention and treatment, NCDs and malaria programming. PSI has been measurably improving the health of Kenyans since 1989. PSI programs in Kenya are mostly implemented through in-country partners across Kenya, majority being through our Independent Network Member, PS Kenya.
