Mission

PSI makes it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan families they desire by marketing affordable products and services. PSI's global health network of more than 50 local organizations focuses on serious challenges like a lack of family planning, HIV and AIDS, barriers to 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 wide acceptance and proper use.

PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health and local organizations to create health solutions that are built to last.

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 and AIDS, barriers to 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 wide acceptance and proper use.

PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health and local organizations to create health solutions that are built to last.

1. Communicating for Social Change- We develop cutting-edge behavior change communications strategies using traditional and emerging technologies to motivate people to adopt healthy behaviors.

2. Market development- We integrate all segments of the market to make each of our health products and services work harder and smarter to meet our beneficiaries' needs where they live.

3. Social franchising- we take a page on franchising from the corporate playbook by establishing networks of branded health centers that bring affordable, reliable and high quality services to millions.

4. Marketing products and services- we use market analysis and consumer insights to make affordable, accessible and appealing. We take a business approach to saving lives.

We have an uncompromising focus on measurable health impact and we measure our effect on disease and death much like a for-profit measures its profits.

Our fundamental measures of health impact are the disability-adjusted life year (DALY) averted and couple years of protection (CYP) provided. When we avert one DALY, it means that we have prevented the loss of one year of productive, healthy life. When we provide one CYP, it means that we have provided one year of protection against unintended pregnancy.

We added more than 30.6 million years of healthy life in 2015. Of these, over 4 million unintended pregnancies were prevented, 10,530 maternal deaths were prevented, 478,545 deaths due to malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia were avoided, and 260,517 HIV infections were prevented.
