Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization, operating in more than 60 developing countries.  PSI creates demand for essential health products and services by using private sector marketing techniques and innovative communications campaigns. On the supply side, PSI works with the commercial sector to increase the availability of these products and services at prices that are affordable to low-income populations.
