Helping women beat the odds

Every day, Aggie Phiri wakes up at 5am, worrying about rural women in Zambia – women who married early and have 16 children, women struggling with unintended pregnancies, and women with no access to contraception. Then, she puts on her dancing shoes and gets to work.

What We Do

We can end extreme poverty within our lifetime by improving the health of families across the developing world.

We provide life-saving information, products and services to tackle the most pressing health problems, so that people can lead healthier, happier, more productive lives.
What We Do


See how we make it easier for women and couples to plan the families they desire, have safe pregnancies and deliveries, and protect themselves and their families from malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea, malnutrition, HIV and AIDS, and chronic diseases.

Why We're not your ordinary NGO

We’re a nonprofit, but we take a business approach to saving lives.

We break the traditional development model and tackle the toughest health problems by using proven business practices like marketing and franchising, by helping build strong health systems in the private and public sector, by tapping into the expertise of 9,000 local staff in countries around the world, and by measuring our impact.
How We Work Where We Work How We Measure Impact

Supporting the Conversation

Following what’s happening in the global health community can be a challenge. And, too often global health stories aren’t covered in mainstream press. We bring you the latest news in global health and development through Impact, our award-winning magazine and blog.
