our core values

Transition to PS Kenya

After 25 years of successful operations in Kenya we recognized that Kenya – and our organization – had come a long way. In 2014, PSI’s operations and people transitioned to a locally registered, independent, Kenyan entity driven by the conviction that a locally led and governed organization is well positioned to work with the Government of Kenya (GoK) and donors to deliver local solutions driven by best global practices. By doing so, we ensured that Population Services Kenya or “PS Kenya” is well positioned to substantially improve the health of Sara for years to come. PS Kenya is now led by exceptional Kenyan management teams, supported by strong and mature systems, including technical assistance from PSI, and guided by a diverse and visionary board.

Sara: Hero of our story

Our focus is to serve Sara. She is at the center of our strategic plan. Her disease burden, her family planning needs, her health-seeking behavior, and the solutions she requires 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.

where we work

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.
