Population Services Kenya (PS Kenya) is the premier social & behavior change, social marketing & franchising organization in Kenya with over 30 years of experience measurably improving the health of Kenyans by supporting the Ministry of Health (MoH) in addressing public health.

In collaboration with other partners, PS Kenya implements Reproductive, Maternal, New-born, Child, and Adolescent health (RMNCAH), HIV, Malaria, and TB programs. The organizational goal is to reduce morbidity and mortality and improve the health of Kenyans, with the vision to be the leader in delivering sustainable health impact and private health sector engagement. PS Kenya recognizes the vital role of the private health sector in service provision in Kenya. The organization focuses on strengthening the quality of healthcare provision in the private sector through various initiatives such as introducing health innovations, provider behavior change, and the social franchising model (Tunza).

Additionally, PS Kenya is a leader in Social and Behavioral Change Communication (SBCC) and the commercial component of health interventions. The organization’s approach to SBCC is evidence-based and community-led, co-created with the communities it serves to address social and individual factors hindering behavior change. PS Kenya also markets quality and affordable health products and services to reduce barriers to access and leverages the private sector distribution chain to reach those in need.

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, family planning needs, health-seeking behavior, and the solutions she requires to survive and thrive.

We intend to follow Sara’s health-seeking needs. We have learnt that viewing health areas as isolated silos ignores 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 in 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 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, the Ministry of Health, and other local NGOs to create health solutions that impact Sara’s health for the long haul.
