Pursuing universal health coverage through innovative and sustainable solutions that meet the actual health needs of people in developing countries.Give Now
We approach care from the consumers’ perspective, improve the market for products and services, and develop solutions that are affordable, convenient and effective, to help make universal health coverage more of a reality.
PSI looks at all programming through the lens of gender, including the impact that violence has on access to health services.View other health areas
Not only are we helping to build sustainable solutions for the world’s most serious health issues, but we’re also creating a healthcare experience that treats beneficiaries like consumers—starting with putting more care and control directly in consumers’ hands. We believe consumer-powered healthcare results in better healthcare.
And, we’re making some bold commitments to achieve faster results.

Revolutionizing the way people access contraception and helping them plan the families they desire.
Over 214 million women and girls lack access to modern contraception. And, an estimated 20 million unsafe abortions occur every year, putting women’s lives at risk.
Increasing access to and use of household water treatment, soap and toilets.
Every year, 842,000 people around the world die from diseases associated with unsafe water
Improving the availability, affordability and use of effective malaria prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Nearly half the world’s population is at risk of malaria.
Working for an AIDS-free generation by implementing evidence-based, cost-effective interventions in collaboration with country governments and other partners.
In 2016, there were 36.7 million people living with HIV.
We’re implementing biomedical, behavioral and structural interventions using a combination of preventative actions.
Developing cutting edge screening, treatment, and care interventions to address cervical cancer, diabetes and hypertension.
NCDs account for more deaths than HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, diarrhea and all other communicable diseases, combined.
We'll partner with others to bring the latest medical and technological advances that enable consumers to “self-initiate” care. We'll use evidence and consumer insights to create new opportunities for consumers to access information, social and emotional support, products, services, diagnostics and treatment to become active participants in their healthcare. This will include:
We'll partner with others to ensure all sexually-active young people have access to the widest range of contraceptive options and that access to services is embraced and advocated for and by young people, their health providers, governments, families and communities. We'll reimagine and redefine the way sexual and reproductive health and rights programs are designed, delivered measured and evaluated. We'll build greater trust between adolescents and the health system and build lifetime users of contraception.
In support of the Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) initiative, PSI pledges to reach 10 million people under the age of 25 with modern contraceptive methods by the end of December 2020.
We'll actively partner with governments, the private sector and others to find solutions for the 400 million people globally who currently lack access to a front line of basic health services. Building on our experience of more than 15 years working with over 20,000 health providers across 25 countries, we will deploy the latest market, consumer and provider insights to help increase and sustain the equitable use of existing private or public healthcare networks. While solutions will differ country by country, and community by community, they'll all focus on building primary healthcare systems from the consumers’ perspective, which is critical to achieving sustained use of products, services, and medicines and quality health outcomes. We'll improve access in three ways:
Development assistance for health – particularly for vertical disease management interventions – is flatlining. We'll actively partner with donors and governments to promote domestic resource mobilization to achieve UHC faster. We'll facilitate the development and delivery of financing mechanisms at scale, such as social insurance and strategic purchasing of services from non-public primary health care access points. We'll broaden our social enterprise business models, catering to consumers who can pay without financial hardship (another form of domestic financing) and more effectively targeting subsidy where most needed.
