The Council has a network of offices in 18 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and over 500 staff members who hail from 33 countries. An international board of 15 individuals from 6 countries governs the organization. Council headquarters and biomedical laboratories are located in New York.

Population Connection, founded in 1968 as ZPG or Zero Population Growth, is the nation's largest grassroots organization concerned with the impacts of rapid population growth. Population Connection's mission -- to slow population growth and achieve a sustainable balance between the Earth's people and its resources -- is based on the fundamental premise that the finite resources of the world cannot support an infinite number of people. Continued population growth is foremost among the factors aggravating deforestation, wildlife extinction, climate change, and other critical environmental and social problems. As a U.S. based organization, Population Connection works to educate and motivate Americans to help meet the global population challenge. By encouraging people to get involved and educate others, Population Connection believes that Americans can begin to alter current trends and make the personal and political decisions necessary to ensure a high quality future for all. Population Connection advocates a variety of measures to reduce population pressure, including adoption of a national population policy, reduction of wasteful consumption, access to safe and affordable contraceptives, enhanced educational and employment opportunities for women, and international support for voluntary family planning programs.
