Our Presence in
Benin

abms/PSI Benin

Association Béninoise pour le Marketing Social et la Communication pour la Santé (ABMS), a PSI network member, works to make health products and services available and accessible for Benin’s low income and vulnerable populations. ABMS’ projects create a synergy between social marketing and communication to change behaviors, making it easier for consumers to access life-saving health products and services. 

Established in 1994, ABMS has continued PSI’s commitment to building the capacity of local, mission-driven organizations capable of decentralized initiatives and decision-making.
