Corporate partners are central to our work

PATH and our partners reached more than 219 million people in 2013 with lifesaving solutions that address child survival, maternal and reproductive health, and infectious diseases. Nearly every project we undertake involves strategic partnerships with the private sector.

Working together, we are solving some of the world’s most urgent health challenges.

  • A historic drop in meningitis cases: With Serum Institute of India Ltd. and the World Health Organization, we developed a vaccine against deadly meningitis A.

Impact: Not a single case of meningitis A among the more than 153 million Africans vaccinated since 2010.

  • A new source of malaria treatment: We convened a global partnership that included Sanofi and Amyris, Inc., to develop a semisynthetic form of the key ingredient in the top malaria treatment.

Impact: Up to 125 million malaria treatments per year.

  • A game changer for vaccinations: The first commercially available autodisable syringe was developed by PATH and licensed to BD.

Impact: More than 6.7 billion vaccinations delivered using SoloShot™ syringes in developing countries since 1990.
