About the organisation
Basic details : The Population Council conducts research to address critical health and development issues. Our work allows couples to plan their families and chart their futures. We help people avoid HIV infection and access life-saving HIV services. And we empower girls to protect themselves and have a say in their own lives.
We conduct research and programs in more than 50 countries. Our New York headquarters supports a global network of offices in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
From its beginning, the Council has given voice and visibility to the world’s most vulnerable people. We increase awareness of the problems they face and offer evidence-based solutions.
In the developing world, governments and civil society organizations seek our help to understand and overcome obstacles to health and development. And we work in developed countries, where we use state-of-the-art biomedical science to develop new contraceptives and products to prevent the transmission of HIV.
Mission : The Population Council’s mission is to improve the well-being and reproductive health of current and future generations and to help achieve a humane, equitable, and sustainable balance between people and resources.
Vision : The Population Council’s Strategic Priorities Framework presents our vision for the road ahead. It allows us to set goals, seek and allocate resources, and hold ourselves accountable to partners, stakeholders, and beneficiaries.
This Framework builds on previous strategic reviews and has been informed by internal and external consultations. It allows us to achieve our mission by innovating strategically around our core work, investing in priority areas where our evidence will yield the greatest impact, and ensuring that we are an effective and efficient organization that continually seeks to evolve and improve.
The Framework includes the Population Council’s goals for the next 15 years and a set of objectives around which we will focus our work for the next 10 years. By continuing to excel across our goals and objectives, we will be able to fully achieve our mission.
The Framework captures our commitment to research and recognizes that to deliver solutions and improve lives, the Population Council must be forward-thinking, nimble, and efficient. The Council’s Organizational Health Goals will ensure that we remain a modern organization able to adapt to an ever-changing landscape.
