Who we are
Population Foundation of India (PFI) is a national non-government organization leading policy advocacy efforts and working as a think tank on population issues in the country.
PFI was established in 1970 by a group of socially committed industrialists led by Mr J.R.D. Tata and Dr Bharat Ram.
PFI collaborates with central, state and local government institutions for effective policy formulation and planning. It supports governmental and non-governmental organisations in the implementation of programmes that focus on Reproductive and Child Health (RCH), Family Planning, Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health (ARSH), Community Action for Health (CAH) and Urban Health. The foundation also works with corporate organizations as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). PFI reaches out to the underserved and the unserved areas of the country through NGO partners.
PFI is also a grant making organization. Over the last four years, it had provided 30 grants in its priority areas.
The foundation is guided by an eminent governing board and an advisory council of renowned personalities from civil society, the government and the private sector.
