PATH drives transformative innovation in pursuit of a bold vision: a world where health is within reach for everyone, no matter where they live.

We advance health equity in the belief that no child should die of a preventable disease, that all mothers should have safe births and healthy newborns, and that every community should have the tools it needs to thrive.

Our approach

PATH is an international nonprofit organization that transforms global health through innovation. Our approach blends the entrepreneurial spirit of business, the scientific expertise of a research institution, and the passion and on-the-ground experience of an international NGO.

For nearly 40 years, we have been pioneers in the development and delivery of health solutions. We accelerate smart ideas and mobilize partners to reach the world’s most vulnerable women and children. Our work spans five platforms: vaccines, devices, diagnostics, drugs, and system and service innovations. It bridges borders, sectors, and disciplines to shape the next generation of health innovations and maximize their lifesaving potential.

Defining innovation

We are known for developing lifesaving health technologies with global impact. From the vaccine vial monitor that alerts health workers when a vaccine has been damaged by heat to low-cost diagnostics that detect malaria, diabetes, and other health threats in minutes, our tools and technologies reach millions of people around the world.

But innovation is more than technology. We also bring innovation to:

  • Collaboration. We connect hundreds of diverse partners, mobilizing the expertise and resources of in-country and public, private, and nonprofit partners to improve lives.
  • Community engagement. We tap the insights and expertise of the people we serve to create affordable, effective, and culturally relevant solutions with enduring health impact.
  • Market dynamics. We create market-based solutions to bring health products and services in reach for low-income consumers.
  • Health systems. We strengthen health systems by improving health care delivery, policies, financing, and processes to ensure lifesaving innovations are delivered efficiently and equitably.

Taking innovation to scale

Across all of our innovations, we use a rigorous process to accelerate the best ideas through our development pipeline. We research and develop targeted health solutions, test and refine them, seek policy changes and regulatory approvals to pave the way for their use, and then introduce and scale them up where they are needed.

This is one of our unique strengths—working across the spectrum from development to delivery, channeling the tremendous potential of inventive ideas, scientific discovery, and groundbreaking collaborations into better health and opportunity for all.
