Population Services International (PSI)
Population Services International (PSI) is a leading global health organization with programs targeting malaria, child survival, HIV and reproductive health. Working in partnership within the public and private sectors, and harnessing the power of the markets, PSI provides life-saving products, clinical services and behavior change communications that empower the world's most vulnerable populations to lead healthier lives.
PSI provides malaria control support to national Ministries of Health in over 30 countries worldwide. PSI tailors its malaria control programs to the unique environment in each country and the needs of the Ministry of Health in line with achieving the Abuja Targets and MDGs. PSI’s malaria control programs include delivery of insecticide treated mosquito nets, pre-packaged malaria treatment, behavior change communications, and operational research.
PSI has an uncommon focus on measurable health impact and attempts to measure its effect on disease and death much like a for-profit measures its profits. In 2009, PSI estimates that its programs directly prevented nearly 150,000 HIV infections, 3.5 million unintended pregnancies, almost 270,000 deaths from malaria and diarrhea and 40 million malaria episodes.
Nothing But Nets and PSI have partnered to distribute lifesaving bed nets in Cote d’Ivoire, Central African Republic, and Cameroon since the partnership began in 2008. Singer, song-writer, and Actress Mandy Moore traveled with the campaign to Central African Republic and Cameroon in 2010 and 2011 to raise awareness about malaria.
