About 2/2: /Solutions are at hand: Solutions for the world’s biggest health problems are at hand; it only takes a little creativity to make sure those solutions work in poor countries as well as rich ones.  

At PATH, we envision a world where innovation ensures that health is within reach for everyone.

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.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to improve the health of people around the world by:

  • Advancing technologies.
  • Strengthening systems.
  • Encouraging healthy behaviors.

We meet the complex health needs of an expanding world with this multipronged approach that moves solutions from innovation to impact: supporting new ideas through inception, development, and testing; paving the way for introduction in low-resource countries; and working with governments and communities to integrate and expand the most successful ideas.

Collaboration is the core: … (full text about).
