PATH is an international nonprofit organization that creates sustainable, culturally relevant solutions, enabling communities worldwide to break longstanding cycles of poor health. By collaborating with diverse public- and private-sector partners, we help provide appropriate health technologies and vital strategies that change the way people think and act. Our work improves global health and well-being.
We go where we are most needed—and where we can be most effective. Our work reaches more than 70 countries and responds to the spectrum of global health needs. In particular, we focus on:
-Solutions for emerging and epidemic diseases, like AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
-Health technologies designed for low-resource settings, by the people who will use them.
-Safer childbirth and healthy children.
-Health equity for women, among the world’s most vulnerable—and influential—populations.
-The basic protection of vaccines for women and children around the world.
WHAT WE DO
EMERGING AND EPIDEMIC DISEASE
PATH reduces the burden of epidemic diseases—including AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis—as well as emerging threats such as pandemic inﬂuenza.
We bring appropriate, affordable technologies to low-resource settings. Our interventions improve immunization, nutrition, diagnosis, child survival, and maternal and reproductive health.
Safe birth and newborn health technologies
MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH
PATH improves the health of women and children by addressing the leading causes of maternal and child death. Our projects focus on safe birth and newborn care, nutrition, and control of diarrheal disease.
We work to prevent cervical cancer, advocate for services and supplies, address family-planning needs, prevent sexually transmitted infections, and encourage healthier behaviors.

Research for women's health
VACCINES AND IMMUNIZATION
PATH closes gaps in access to livesaving vaccines. Our projects accelerate vaccine research and development, expand access to new vaccines, and strengthen health systems.
