Who we are
With over 50 years of experience, working in over 40 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer powered healthcare.
There are over 5,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurial development professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. All with unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do.
PSI implements cutting edge programming in Kenya to improve women’s access to vital reproductive health services, WASH, HIV prevention and treatment, NCDs and malaria programming. PSI programs in Kenya are mostly implemented through in-country partners across Kenya. PSI seeks a Subaward Coordinator to help us actively manage and monitor a portfolio of subawards in Kenya and ensure financial and contractual compliance.
