  2. Together with over 400 external stakeholders from across 50 countries, PATH has crafted a new institutional strategy that responds to the current crises we face as a global community, to the needs and priorities of our local partners, and to the resounding calls for the continued transformation of our sector. To bring our new strategy to life for our external partners, we’ve developed a strategy brochure. The brochure explains why PATH exists (our mission), what we will do (our priorities) and, perhaps most importantly, how we will do it (our change strategies).

  3. India is an emerging economy with a population of more than 1.3 billion people. Over the past several decades the country has experienced rapid development and there has been a marked shift in its disease pattern. Given the rise in the noncommunicable disease (NCD) burden in India, PATH and Access Accelerated undertook an NCD landscaping study to identify key stakeholders as well as barriers and facilitators in the provision of NCD care. PATH developed priority areas of investment based on expert interviews, local prevalence data, and a review of policies and related literature exposing barriers and facilitators to access to quality NCD care.

  5. A reliable supply chain is often referred to as the “backbone” of a health system. In addition to meeting the demand for drugs and medical supplies, it serves to safeguard a country’s investments in health commodities, which is particularly important as countries ramp up efforts to work toward universal health coverage.The aim of this Journey of the Pill assessment is to identify strengths and inefficiencies in the supply chain in Ghana. It builds on PATH’s earlier supply chain assessment in Kenya. Further defining the journey of medicines will help inform the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders of future actions to strengthen commodity security for noncommunicable diseases.

It builds on PATH’s earlier assessment from the No Empty Shelves project that focused on medicines and products to treat diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia in Kenya and Senegal. Further defining the journey of medicines will help inform the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders of future actions to strengthen commodity security for noncommunicable diseases.

We’ve supported its work to expand sexual, reproductive, maternal, and child health services, and to address infectious and vaccine-preventable diseases. Today, as rapid social and economic changes transform Vietnam, we are leveraging our thought leadership with the government, the private sector, civil-society organizations, and social entrepreneurs to advance equitable access to good health. Specific efforts include developing sustainable responses to diseases like HIV and tuberculosis (TB); supporting local stakeholders to develop their own health solutions, like domestically produced vaccines; and acting quickly to address new and emerging health threats, such as non-communicable diseases, hospital infections, drug resistance, and environmental dangers.
