We're Population Services International (PSI), the world's leading non-profit social marketing organization.

PSI/Mali

PSI/Mali was founded in 2001 to use commercial marketing strategies for improving reproductive health and child survival, and to reduce new HIV infections. Since then, PSI/Mali has implemented several programs on malaria, family planning, cervical cancer, sanitation and a program to reduce the incidence of female genital cutting (FGC). We are a group of highly dedicated individuals who are proud to work through our programs to provide quality health services to the Malian people.

PSI/Mali's Family Planning (FP) & Reproductive Health (RH) Department focuses on the launch & scale-up of high?quality FP/RH services, built on a strong base of FP programming and integrated with other health areas where appropriate to achieve maximum health impact. We protect our clients' sexual & reproductive health rights by ensuring informed choice, voluntarism, client confidentiality & privacy, client safety and continuity of care, and safe abortion. One of the department's largest projects is the Women's Health Project (WHP), a global project focusing on increasing access to long-term family planning methods and access to post abortion care in Mali and 14 other countries. In this fourth phase of the project, PSI/Mali will continue to work with the RH/FP department at PSI Headquarters (WHP core team) to ensure high quality services for Malian women.
