Below are links to nine organizations supported by USAID to implement PHE projects. These include:

- Population Reference Bureau - The Population Reference Bureau informs people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and empowers them to use that information to advance the well-being of current and future generations.
- Conservation International - Working with the support of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in Madagascar, the Philippines and Cambodia along with local NGOs and partners, CI is helping rural communities understand the relationship between having smaller, healthier families and improving the stewardship of natural resources and protecting forests that are habitat for globally significant biodiversity.
- World Wildlife Fund (WWF) -
WWF is one of the world's most experienced and independent conservation organizations with projects in more than 100 countries.
- Jane Goodall Institute -
The Institute launched a community-centered conservation program in the Democratic Republic of Congo ( DRC) in 2004.
