Population Council Institute logoThe Population Council has worked in partnership with health and social science institutions in India since the 1960s and established its Delhi office in 1994. Today, the Population Council Institute is a locally-registered entity with a separate board of trustees.

The Council is a trusted partner of the Government of India and global donors such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), USAID, World Bank, Children Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), and more. The Council’s India offices have vast experience on research implementation and evaluation programs on young people’s health and development; sexual and reproductive health; maternal and child health; education and nutrition; community mobilization interventions; HIV; migration; and poverty and gender.  

The work has spanned formative research to build the evidence base for effective programming; intervention research that tests the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of innovative programs; documentation and synthesis of evidence; data triangulation and deeper analysis of large-scale data sets; research and program capacitybuilding; and dissemination of new findings; and promising intervention approaches.
