In August 2020, PATH announced global leadership changes and created the roles of the Chief of Asia, Middle East, Europe (AMEE) Region and the Chief of the African Region, which is held by Dr. Nanthalile Mugala. These positions support the global organization’s next strategy toward a more equitable organization and advance a sustainability agenda.
