Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

In 2018 alone, PSI provided an estimated 24 million years of healthy life that would have been lost to death or disability (DALYs), provided 17.7 million years of contraceptive protection to couples (CYPs), prevented 6.42 million unintended pregnancies, over 240 thousand infections of HIV, and over 95 thousand deaths due to malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia.

As PSI looks to the future, the organization will reimagine healthcare to put the consumer at the center and whenever possible bring care to the front door.
