PASMO is the commercial entity of PSI Latin America, and pursues a “profit for purpose,” generating revenue that it invests back into the business under a self-sustainable model and to support other health initiatives within the organization. PASMO S.A. was founded in 1996 to market VIVE, a regionally available quality condom brand. PASMO S.A. currently provides a robust product basket including in addition of condoms oral contraception, injectables, emergency contraception, lubricants and long-term contraception.
Through the Social Business the organization also provides health care services by a network of clinics called Red Segura for in-person services and is venturing in the digital space with the new VIYA Telemedicine services to expand medical attention to wider geographies. Both, Red Segura and VIYA deliver high quality services with the same vision of sustainability.

Like a traditional commercial business, we seek to earn income through the sale of products and services. However, we also work to achieve health and social impact for people in vulnerable situations, thereby creating a double bottom line.
Over the last 50 years we have worked in 25 markets globally to generate demand, design health solutions with our consumers, and work with local partners to bring quality and affordable healthcare products and services to market. Our social businesses have delivered lasting health impact around the work through lifecycle products and services for prevention and care inclusive of a wide range of contraceptive methods, self-care, safe abortion and postpartum care.
In 2022, PASMO achieved:
users reached with modern contraception
years of protection from unintended pregnancy provided for couples
million condoms distributed
of the regional market share

With overarching commitments to flexibility in our work, and greater wellbeing for our employees, we want to ensure PSI is positioned for success with a global and holistic view of talent. Under our new “work from (almost) anywhere,” or “WFAA” philosophy, we are making the necessary investments to be an employer of record in more than half of U.S. states, and consider the U.S. as one single labor market for salary purposes. 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.
