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 work bridges borders, sectors, and disciplines to shape the next generation of health innovations and maximize their lifesaving potential. From devices like the vaccine vial monitor, which alerts health workers when a vaccine has been damaged by heat, to a comprehensive approach to eliminating malaria, our tools and technologies reach millions 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.
