Three Reasons to Invest in Healthy Lives

By Karl Hofmann

Health — we shouldn’t take it for granted.

PSI helps mothers and children survive the most serious health challenges they face – like a lack of access to family planning, or HIV and AIDS. And we stem the greatest threats to children under five, including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition.

Here are three more reasons why PSI is your best investment:

  1. We get results and measure everything. Last year, PSI products and services helped women and girls by preventing 230,740 deaths due to malaria, diarrhea and pneumonia; 5,644,440 unintended pregnancies; 254,792 HIV infections; and 15,441 maternal deaths.
  2. We are efficient. More than 93 percent of your donation goes directly to support PSI’s programs.
  3. We report our results frequently. PSI has an uncompromising focus on measurable health impact, and we have a deep commitment to reporting the results of our work to our donors. We produce monthly and annual impact reports and quantitative and qualitative studies about our work that we share openly with supporters and other health providers.

Please make a donation today, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together in 2015.
