POPULATION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL (PSI)

MISSION
PSI makes it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services.

DESCRIPTION
PSI is a global health organization dedicated to improving the health of people in the developing world by focusing on serious challenges like a lack of family planning, HIV/AIDS, maternal health, and the greatest threats to children under five, including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia, and malnutrition.

A hallmark of PSI is a commitment to the principle that health services and products are most effective when they are accompanied by robust communications and distribution efforts that help ensure that they are widely accepted and properly used. As a non-profit organization, PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health, and local organizations, creating health solutions that are built to last.

HEALTH IMPACT
PSI has an uncompromising focus on measurable health impact and measures its effect on disease and death much like a for-profit measures its profits. Just last year PSI saved the lives of 15,441 mothers, prevented 5,644,400 unintended pregnancies, stopped 254,792 new HIV infections, and avoided 273,740 deaths due to diseases like malaria, diarrhea and pneumonia that most threaten young children.
