Welcome to PATH
We are a global nonprofit improving public health.
About us

Public health across sectors

We forge partnerships across sectors and borders, with governments and philanthropists, nonprofits and the private sector. We’ve been doing it for more than 40 years.

Focused on equity

Everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy life. With the help of our partners, we develop, adapt, and scale up solutions to accelerate progress toward health equity.

We're responding to COVID-19

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, we are working to lessen its impact. Our experts are partnering with governments to establish emergency operations centers; advise on testing, treating, and managing the outbreak; and stand up digital and data systems that support real-time disease surveillance.
