PSI Niger

PSI Niger was founded in 2013 to address the high disease burden in the country. PSI Niger has worked in reproductive health; HIV prevention in the military; water, sanitation and hygiene improvement; gender equality; and malaria prevention and treatment Today, PSI Niger is focused on reproductive health, including family planning and post-abortion care, as well as malaria prevention and treatment. PSI Niger programs apply a gender lens to their activities, to leverage programming to empower women in communities. By working with religious and opinion leaders, men, women and youth, PSI Niger strives to enable consumers to access the products and services they need to live healthier lives.

Practice Areas
We Focus On

To reduce unintended pregnancies, morbidity and maternal mortality, PSI Niger supports the Ministry of Health to increase access to, and quality of, contraception and post-abortion care services in the public and private sectors. PSI Niger works at the national, regional, district and community levels to support both quality services and create an enabling environment for contraception by working with men, women, religious leaders and youth to prompt changes in behaviors drive demand for services amongst the women and girls who need it most.

PSI works with the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and the Nigerien Ministry of Health to support Niger’s malaria response. PMI Impact Malaria and VectorLink work to reinforce national training and supportive supervision strategies, improve malaria in pregnancy prevention, conduct large scale seasonal malaria chemoprevention campaigns for children under 5, implement integrated community case management, conduct mosquito net durability testing and identify routine net distribution solutions.
