Join PATH at Women Deliver 2016

May 12, 2016 by PATH

With exhibits and experts showcasing our work to develop and deliver solutions in women's health, PATH will have a strong presence at the Women Deliver 2016 conference in Copenhagen, May 16—19.

For nearly 40 years, PATH has created innovative health solutions that transform health at every stage of a woman's life–from improving sexual and reproductive health, to ensuring safe births, to preventing and treating women's cancers and other chronic diseases. PATH accelerates innovation across five platforms–vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations–leveraging our organization's entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity.
Women Deliver is one of the world's largest gatherings of policymakers, advocates, and researchers focused exclusively on women's health and empowerment. PATH is proud to be a gold sponsor of this year's conference.

At Women Deliver 2016 PATH representatives will take part in numerous events to demonstrate our organization's work, discuss PATH's integrated approach to enhancing health equity, and talk about PATH's global efforts to improve women's health across the lifecycle.
