The Population Council is an international, nongovernmental organization that seeks 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. Founded in 1952, the Council works in more than 70 countries (in Latin America, Asia and Africa) and focuses on improving the quality and accessibility of reproductive health services, supporting adolescent health, education and development, developing new contraceptives and other reproductive health care products, reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS, mitigating the effects of this epidemic, and training leaders in the fields of biomedicine, public health, and social science to build institutional capacity in the developing world.
