PRB is a nonprofit organization with offices in Washington DC and Nairobi, and an office opening in Dakar. PRB’s vision is a world in which decision-makers improve the health and well-being of all people through evidence-based policies and practices. To further this vision, PRB informs people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and empowers people to use this information to advance the well-being of current and future generations. Specifically, PRB:

  • Analyzes demographic data and research to provide objective, accurate, and up-to-date population information in accessible formats.
  • Provides tools and training, and builds coalitions, to help others understand and communicate effectively about population issues.
  • Convenes and engages researchers, policy advocates, policy stakeholders, and decision makers to foster evidence-based dialogue.

PRB works in the United States and internationally with a wide range of partners in the government, nonprofit, research, business, and philanthropy sectors.
