Population Services Kenya (PS Kenya) has been measurably improving the health of Kenyans since
1989. Our approach harnesses the vitality of the private sector to improve health outcomes for “Sara”
– our archetype that focuses our interventions. We address the most serious health challenges
affecting resource – poor and vulnerable communities in Kenya, including HIV/AIDS, reproductive
health, non-communicable diseases and the greatest threats to children under five including malaria,
diarrhoea, pneumonia and malnutrition.
Our focus is to serve Sara, the Hero of our story.She is at the centre of our strategic plan: her disease burden, her Family Planning needs, her health seeking behaviour and requirement solutions to survive and thrive.
We intend to follow Sara’s health seeking needs. We have learned that viewing health areas as isolated silos ignores the fact that Sara and her family have cross-cutting needs in multiple health areas, from Family planning to HIV to health threats affecting her children.
Sara predominantly seeks health solutions from private providers who can address many different needs in one convenient location. This presents a vast opportunity for PS Kenya, a leader of social franchising in Kenya to expand and improve the quality of information and services Sara accesses from the private sector providers
A key strength of PS Kenya is our commitment to the principle that health services and products are most effective when they are accompanied by robust communications and distribution efforts that help ensure wide acceptance and proper use. Therefore we work in 42 out of 47 counties in Kenya partnering with the national and county governments, ministry of health and other local NGOs to create health solutions that impacts Sara’s health for the long-haul.
PS Kenya is honoured to be served by a diligent and passionate leadership comprising of individuals with a range of qualities, wisdom and experience to drive our passion for meeting Sara’s health needs
