The Population Council, an international, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization seeks to improve the well-being and reproductive health of current and future generations around the world. Over the past five decades, Council researchers have collaborated with local governments and nongovernmental organizations worldwide to expand access to quality health services, increase the options for safe, affordable, and reversible contraception for men as well as women, and shape policies and programs to improve health outcomes, based on what works in the real world. The Council’s biomedical, public health, and social scientists today are identifying and testing solutions to the most important population, health, and development problems, working in three key program areas: HIV & AIDS; Poverty, Gender & Youth; and Reproductive Health. The Council is headquartered and has biomedical laboratories in New York, and has a network of 17 offices in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
