SFH Dominican Republic

Society for Family Health (SFH) Dominican Republic was established as a local nonprofit organization in the Dominican Republic in 2014 but has operated in the country as PSI Dominican Republic since 2003. Since its founding, SFH has successfully implemented interventions across sexual and reproductive health (SRH), water, sanitation and hygiene, gender-based violence prevention, diabetes prevention, social marketing for products (with a focus on condoms), research development and social behavior change campaigns – all while building the capacity of civil society organizations.
