Our Approach

Our approach is based on a theory of change that puts young people and women at the center of all development interventions by advancing proven alternatives, strengthening their voices and actions to tackle root causes of poverty, and building their resilience and capabilities to respond to natural and man-made vulnerabilities.

Population International works with governments, local partners and community organizations in the developing countries to reach the most-at-risk and hard-to-reach populations of women, men and young people with priority information and services addressing integrated HIV/AIDS, SHRH and WASH.

We believe that public health, particularly sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) should be guaranteed and provided for everyone everywhere, regardless of their sexual orientation, race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, social or economic class, and religious or political affiliations.

We are committed to gender equality, we value diversity and participation especially of the young people and people living with HIV/AIDS, and we consider the spirit of volunteerism to be central and significant to achieving our mandate and advancing our noble causes globally.

Our country programmes in developing countries focus on the provision of integrated information and services on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), including HIV/AIDS, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), with gender equality, prevention of gender based violence, promotion of human rights, and conservation of the environment as cross-cutting themes.

Our Target Countries

Uganda

Uganda is in East Africa. Fertility levels remain tremendously high, driven by very high adolescent fertility and unintended pregnancy among all women.

South Sudan

South Sudan is a dreary place for sexual and reproductive health. Maternal mortality is reportedly the highest in the world at 2054 per 100,000 live births. Family planning acceptance is well below the norm and HIV is alarmingly on the rise.

Nigeria

Nigeria is West Africa. The most populous country on the continent, there is unprecedented need for increased Family Planning services to curb rapidly growing population.
