PSI South Africa

Overview

PSI South Africa’s vision is to create a financially viable business that optimizes health impact by developing targeted solutions to increase consumer choice and access to quality, affordable health products. PSI South Africa began as a condom business in 2012 and has since expanded into pharmaceuticals in 2017. PSI South Africa’s geographical reach extends beyond South Africa to include Lesotho, Eswatini, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Why Social Business?

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. Our social businesses have delivered lasting health impact around the work through lifecycle products for prevention and care inclusive of a wide range of contraceptive methods, self-care, safe abortion and postpartum care.

Our Approach

Historically, PSI South Africa has always taken an enterprise-style approach to global health challenges, coupling donor funding with marketing, the use of branded products, and consumer insights from the private sector. Now, PSI is taking on a consumer-powered approach in markets that can support social businesses to scale donor-funded initiatives through social entrepreneurship to create self-sustaining, profitable social businesses. To ensure long-term sustainability of its businesses, PSI uses digital technology marketing and global talent to balance the pursuit of social impact and financial self-reliance.
