Public-Private Mix for TB Control: Indian Chemists Join National Efforts to Find and Treat More Cases of TB

This project brief describes PATH’s contributions to developing public-private mix (PPM) approaches to TB control in India. With support from the United States Agency for International Development, PATH supported a PPM pilot project in Andhra Pradesh that aimed to train private chemists in identifying presumed TB cases and referring them to government diagnosis centers, promoting community awareness of TB prevention, and reducing the sale of TB drugs to persons without a prescription. This project provided valuable lessons and insights into applying PPM strategies to future TB control projects in India and elsewhere.

Target Product Profile: HIV Self-Test Version 4.1: A White Paper on the Evaluation of Current HIV Rapid Tests and Development of Core Specifications for Next-Generation HIV Tests

This annotated target product profile (TPP) describes the desired characteristics of an HIV self-test and is a result of a review of currently available literature, interviews with key informants/stakeholders, laboratory-generated data on the performance of rapid tests, and early usability studies in Kenya, Malawi, and South Africa. The purpose of the TPP is to provide a common foundation for the development of HIV self-tests that contains sufficient detail to allow device developers and key stakeholders to understand the characteristics a test must have to be successful.

Semisynthetic Artemisinin: Cross-Sector Partnership to Stabilize the Antimalarial Drug Supply

Artemisinin-based combination therapy is considered the gold standard treatment for malaria, but global demand has often outpaced production, and pricing has been volatile. With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH and our partners set out to develop a new pharmaceutical manufacturing process to produce commercial volumes of high-quality, nonseasonal, and affordable artemisinin to supplement the plant-based supply. This poster, presented at the Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium on April 25, 2014, presents key facts on malaria, the market for artemisinin, partner roles, and commercial production.
