This week, PATH will join leaders from around the world in New York for the 70th anniversary of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, Sustainable Development Summit, Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, and Social Good Summit to rally around the new global goals that will drive health and development efforts for the next 15 years.
Formally known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they aim to end poverty and improve quality of life for all people by 2030.
PATH continues to help shape aspects of the global goals, particularly around maternal and child health, and the critical role of innovation to achieve this ambitious vision for the world. The Innovation Countdown 2030 initiative points to an example where PATH reached across the world to crowdsource ideas in new and different ways and identify 30 innovations with great potential to accelerate progress toward the SDG health targets. As the leader in global health innovation, PATH will work to tackle the health challenges seen and unseen to end poverty and ensure good health for all by 2030.
As part of its contribution to the SDGs, PATH is making a commitment to the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's, and Adolescents' Health to reach more than 500 million people over the next five years with lifesaving vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations. This commitment will be part of the Sustainable Development Summit on September 26. PATH will participate in several other key events in New York:
