BACKGROUND


Population Services International (PSI) is a global health and development organization working in more than 50 countries to make quality, affordable health care accessible to people where and when they need it. Out of the 7 billion people on the planet, 3.5 billion do not have access to quality essential healthcare. This inequity must change. PSI believes that health equity can only be achieved by drawing on the power of the public and private sectors and putting more control in consumers’ hands, and giving them quality affordable health care where and when they need it. PSI works with consumers, at the community level, to understand what they want and need in health resources. We then leverage our global network of 8,000 experts and our partnership in the public and private sector to fill in gaps in the markets. Join PSI’s efforts to make quality affordable health care accessible to people where and when they need it.

 

The Strategy & Insights (S&I) Department promotes best practice in program design, marketing discipline, research, learning, and strategy development. S&I works with other departments to systematically capture, synthesize, and share internal and external evidence, consumer and market insights, competitive market intelligence, and program experience. As part of S&I, the Strategic Research and Learning Team is accountable for establishing and advancing an organizational learning agenda, ensuring the identification and exchange of learning and insights internally, and for the implementation, use and elevation of quality, ethical research. The SR&L team is seeking a pool of Scientific Writing and Research consultants to support the organization through Indefinite Quantity Contracts (IQC) – a flexible arrangement for the provision of an indefinite amount of services within a fixed period. Individual Task Orders will be issued under the IQC which state the specific assignment, dates, and timeline.
