The Population Council conducts research to address critical health and development issues. Knowledge Commons, our digital repository, helps to ensure that evidence generated by the Council and partners is accessible and can be readily used to inform policies, programs, and practices worldwide.

Knowledge Commons gathers, indexes, preserves, and makes widely available a broad range of research content in multiple formats and languages. We are proud to share the ideas and evidence we have generated over 65 years working in more than 50 countries.

As we add more content to Knowledge Commons, some collections will initially have a limited number of resources. Please check back regularly to find content.
