Population Council

The Population Council is an international, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that seeks to improve the well-being and reproductive health of current and future generations around the world and to help achieve a humane, equitable, and sustainable balance between people and resources.

The Population Council confronts the most difficult issues facing people in the developing world—from stopping the spread of HIV and expanding contraceptive choices to improving reproductive health and ensuring youth lead full and productive lives. Through our biomedical, social science, and public health research in more than 50 countries, we work with partners to deliver solutions that lead to more effective policies, programs, and technologies that improve lives worldwide.
