Since 1996, PSI Zimbabwe has supported the Ministry of Health and Child Care to develop and roll out market-led interventions that address the most serious health problems facing vulnerable populations. With an initial focus on HIV prevention through the social marketing of condoms, PSI Zimbabwe’s programs have expanded to include critical products and services across the HIV continuum of care, as well as sexual and reproductive health. These services include HIV testing; screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; voluntary medical male circumcision; TB screening, diagnosis and treatment; and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Sexual health services include cervical cancer screening and provision of modern contraception and services for survivors of sexual violence.
In 2018, PSI Zimbabwe provided 2,119,464 years of healthy life for Zimbabweans, including:
years of protection against unintended pregnancy for couples
voluntary medical male circumcisions provided
users reached with modern contraceptives
positive HIV cases detected
of positive HIV cases linked to antiretroviral therapy
PSI Zimbabwe adapts quickly to new innovations for health products and services, using them to support the Zimbabwean government’s efforts to control the HIV epidemic. Using client-centered approaches, PSI Zimbabwe leverages population-specific insights for reaching adolescent girls, young women, boys, men and key populations to provide them with integrated HIV prevention, care and treatment, as well as products and services for sexual and reproductive health, using various methods of service delivery to get healthcare to Zimbabweans when and where they need it.
PSI Zimbabwe, through the Ministry of Health and Child Care, works with a cohort of local partners to deliver high-quality integrated sexual and reproductive health services and strengthen quality assurance systems for contraceptive products and services. PSI Zimbabwe aims to improve access to and use of these critical products and services in vulnerable populations.

Globally, we recognize the need to compete for talent everywhere; we maintain a talent center in Nairobi and a mini-hub in Abidjan. PSI also already works with our Dutch-based European partner, PSI Europe, and we’re creating a virtual talent center in the UK.
