How We Effect Change


As the non-profit and broadcast production partner working toward global sustainability, we’re focused on conducting activities, programs, and communications campaigns that provide immediate and transformative opportunities for the people of today. We work across a wide array of social and environmental issues, with special focus on the following:

Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights

When women and girls — and men and boys and nonbinary people — have agency over their sexual and reproductive health and rights, they are able to pursue education, follow their dreams, and reach their full potential. Population Media Center accelerates progress towards global sustainability by helping people make their sexual and reproductive health decisions from a place of personal freedom and autonomy.

Family Planning & Modern Contraception

One of Population Media Center’s most vital contributions to global sustainability is our work to destigmatize voluntary family planning, correct misinformation about the safety and efficacy of modern contraception, and dismantle patriarchal opposition to contraception.

Ideal Family Size

We raise awareness about the social constructs driving ideal and realized family size decisions. Will your wife stray unless she is kept pregnant? Do more children mean more laborers? Are you more of a man if you father more children? Our programs focus on educating current and prospective parents about they myths driving many family size decisions and the many well-documented health and economic benefits of small family size decisions.

8 Billion Opportunities

The world’s population has reached 8 billion people. We must inspire entire communities to recognize the social and environmental power of prioritizing health, education, and equity for all.
