PSI and its partners will test new and bold ways of collaborating with young people to reimagine and redefine the way sexual, reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programs are designed, delivered, measured, and evaluated. In doing so, PSI aims to improve its collection of age-disaggregated data and share lessons learned.
PSI will work toward ensuring all sexually active young people, regardless of marital status or parity, have access to the widest available range of contraceptive options, including long-acting reversible contraceptives, and that access to services is embraced and advocated for by young people, their health providers, their families, and their communities.
PSI’s philosophy is that life is lived holistically and that SRHR can only be effectively addressed in the context of a hopeful vision of a bright future. PSI is seeking innovative entry points for adolescent- and youth-focused SRHR programs, new ways of packaging and delivering high quality services to adolescents and youth, and new models of sustainability that harness market forces.

Other plans include promoting dual protection for prevention of unwanted pregnancy and STIs/HIV by increasing the availability of male and female condoms for sexually active persons; integrating family planning services with PMTCT and MCH services, with a particular focus on post-partum women; and improving and scaling-up gender-sensitive family planning services for vulnerable groups including youth, especially adolescent girls.
