PATH envisions a world where innovation ensures that health is within reach for everyone.

We dare to believe that innovation can change the world

PATH is the leader in global health innovation. An international nonprofit organization, we save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

Our commitment

PATH is driven by an unshakeable commitment to health equity and a bold belief in the power of innovation to improve health and save lives. For nearly 40 years, PATH has been a pioneer in translating bold ideas into breakthrough health solutions, with a focus on child survival, maternal and reproductive health, and infectious diseases.

Our expertise

PATH brings innovative solutions to bear wherever they are needed—in the laboratory or the factory, government halls or communities. We specialize in overcoming the barriers that can keep a bright idea from reaching widespread impact, especially those that arise in the middle of the journey of innovation. This is where promising projects often fail, during steps like testing and refining, gaining approvals, commercializing a product, and introducing new approaches. Through experience, creativity, and tenacity, we accelerate the pace at which innovations are transferred into the hands of the people who need them.

Our innovation platforms

PATH takes a multidimensional approach to solving health challenges. Our work spans five platforms, which we deploy strategically for greatest impact:

Vaccines to give children a healthy start in life.

Drugs to treat diseases more effectively and at lower cost.

Diagnostics to detect and track diseases.

Devices like household water filters and prefilled, nonreusable syringes.

And system and service innovations to ensure that all these tools reach the people who need them.

Our partnerships

PATH mobilizes cross-sector partnerships that radically extend our reach, making powerful tools and strategies accessible at a massive scale. We start with a country’s needs, partnering with government and civil-society institutions to develop and introduce health solutions that address the country’s highest priorities. Corporations, foundations, social entrepreneurs, individuals, as well as governments and multilateral institutions provide complementary strengths and capabilities.

 

Our impact

From devices like the vaccine vial monitor, which alerts health workers when a vaccine has been damaged by heat, to the newest science and strategies for eliminating malaria, our innovations have reached billions of people around the world.

By accelerating innovation, PATH and our partners are transforming the lives of the world’s most vulnerable women and children and helping to create thriving, self-reliant communities.
