Vetting Centers and Charities

What:

Population Services International (PSI) helps women live healthier lives and plan for the families that they desire. For over 50 years, PSI has been committed to using measurement and evaluation to identify and develop the most impactful, innovative and cost-effective solutions for some of the most challenging health issues in global development. PSI's primary focus is on modern family planning and contraception, but it also works in the areas of HIV, malaria, water, sanitation, hygiene, and non-communicable diseases (including diabetes, hypertension and cervical cancer).

 

Where:

PSI runs programs in over 50 countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa. With its global network of 8,900 local experts, PSI estimates that it added 38.1 million years of healthy lives in 2016 with its products and services.

Why: 

The 225 million women in the developing world who want contraception but can’t access it face dire consequences. Without the ability to decide when to have a child, there is little opportunity for women to break the cycle of extreme poverty for their families. Even those that have access to contraception haven’t been educated about the range of healthcare and family planning options available to them while facing barriers to access like religious, social and cultural norms. When having children, these women suffer from high risks of complications during pregnancy that can cause death, struggle to financially care for their families, and are unable to finish their educations.
