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.

With a bottom-line orientation that is rare among non-profits, PSI markets products and services for family planning, maternal and child health, and the prevention of AIDS, malaria and other diseases.  For more information, please visit: PSI’s HIV Department aims to improve the performance of PSI’s HIV intervention performance by applying best practices and piloting, proving and diffusing innovations in HIV prevention.
