Amie Batson, MBA, is our chief strategy officer, responsible for guiding PATH’s strategy, strengthening our partnerships and business relationships in the global health community. She is also our vice president of Strategy and Learning, overseeing our work in Market Dynamics and in Results Management, Measurement, and Learning. She also currently serves as acting vice president of Technology Development and Introduction, leading our work in Devices and Tools and in Diagnostics.
Ms. Batson’s 20-year career in global health includes positions with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, and most recently, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), where she served as senior deputy assistant administrator for global health.
During her three-year appointment with USAID, Ms. Batson led the agency’s engagement in the President’s Global Health Initiative, represented the US government on the board of the GAVI Alliance, and led the US government team in coconvening the Child Survival Call to Action, which launched the global vision to end preventable child deaths.
Throughout her career in global health, Ms. Batson has been a leader in innovation. Her contributions to immunization and vaccine financing at the World Bank resulted in billions of dollars in new funding for global health and the vaccination of millions of children against polio, pneumonia, diarrhea, and other vaccine-preventable causes of death.
