Who we are

We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.

Society for Family Health (SFH), an affiliate of Population Services International (PSI), has implemented health programs in line with the priorities of the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ). SFH has implemented programs to address critical public health issues in Zambia in areas such as HIV prevention, Reproductive health, Malaria and Diarrheal diseases.

SFH is currently collaborating with Ministry of Health through the Sexual and Reproductive health for All Initiative (SARAI) which is a five year USAID funded project, to improve reproductive health by increasing the modern contraceptive prevalence rate through increased access to and improved quality of FP/RH services.

We are looking for a Consultant to facilitate a Trainer of Trainers’ workshop for the use of SAYANA press (uniject medroxyprogesterone acetate). It is envisaged that these trainers will in turn train Community Based Distributors (CBDs) on how to provide this injectable contraception. The consultant’s experience will also be sought in the form of technical support for the adaptation of training manuals, hand outs and related job aids.
