The Population Institute (PI) is an international non-profit (registered 501(c)(3) organization) that seeks to promote universal sexual and reproductive health and rights. Through advancing reproductive freedom, we strive to achieve a world population in balance with a healthy global environment and resource base. PI was established in 1969 and is located on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
We envision a world where girls and women have achieved full gender equality; all women have access to reproductive health services, every child is a wanted child, and where global population is brought into balance with a healthy global environment and resource base.
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: We embrace bodily autonomy as a core value. Everyone should have the ability to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Empowerment of Women and Girls: We commit to a future where we have achieved gender equity and equality.
Sustainability: We strive for a healthy, fair, and sustainable future for all.
Social, Racial, and Reproductive Justice: We commit to fight for a future where we have achieved social, racial, and reproductive justice both at home and abroad.
Evidence-Based Approach: We base all our work on facts and data.
