We’re focused on equity
Access to good health too often depends on where we were born, our race, gender, ethnicity, age, class, and other factors. The scope of our work is vast—because that’s what it takes to tackle health problems caused by complex systemic inequities.
Good health opens doors to education and economic opportunity for individuals and families. It strengthens communities and helps markets grow. It’s the foundation of a safer, more just, and more prosperous world for all of us. It moves humanity forward.
We’re global and local
Our team includes scientists, health professionals, business leaders, engineers, advocates, and experts from dozens of other specialties. We work in more than 70 countries to transform bold ideas into sustainable solutions that improve health and well-being for all.
Our pioneering spirit lives on
Launched in 1977 by three intrepid researchers, PATH was a new kind of health organization: a nonprofit that would deliver the expertise, resources, and innovations of private industry to improve health for all.
The model we pioneered transformed the way the world thinks about health and development. And we’re still pioneering.
Today, we are harnessing the power of data and digital tools. Forging unexpected partnerships across borders and sectors. Defending against new disease threats and epidemics. Creating models to transform health care delivery. And fostering innovation in communities everywhere to bring good health—and the jobs and economic stability that come with it—within reach of more people faster.
We’re powered by partnerships
For more than four decades, PATH has been a trusted partner to government leaders, social investors, grassroots groups, and businesses of every size and type. We specialize in matching each partner’s expertise with our unique strengths to develop, deploy, and scale up innovations that remove roadblocks to health.
Mission and strategy
Our bold plan for impact
Launched in 2019, our refreshed strategy unifies PATH’s global team in pursuit of a single, ambitious, world-shaping goal. Learn more about the strategy update and our bold plan to reach 1.4 billion people in the decade ahead.
We’re blazing a path forward
Roadblocks to health are everywhere. We could look away, but we choose to look ahead. Because we believe that when people are healthy, humanity moves forward. Better health means stronger countries, growing markets, and social progress.
Our task now is to identify, develop, and scale up the next wave of affordable, effective health solutions.
It’s a big job. But at PATH, we’re experienced. We’re passionate. We’re driven. We’re looking ahead to turn research into innovation and problems into plans. Because that’s what a path is—a way forward.
We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion
DEI must touch every aspect of our institution, from who we are and where we are to how we operate our business and how we approach public health in communities around the world.
Our three pillars ensure equity is at the heart of everything we do: people, business practices, and public health programming.
