Watch PATH's president and CEO talk about our work at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting

Last week, PATH president and CEO Steve Davis joined more than 2,500 world leaders in business, academia, and civil society at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss the state of the world. Health was a cornerstone of this year’s meeting. In two separate interviews, Steve talked about PATH’s work to solve pressing global health issues and reflected on the role of investments and philanthropy in improving health.

Resilient dynamism

In an interview with Hub Culture Davos reporter Edie Lush, Steve discussed this year’s conference theme—resilient dynamism—and how PATH demonstrates this through the successful meningitis A vaccine, MenAfriVac™, and through our continuing efforts to develop a malaria vaccine and reduce deadly childhood diarrhea.

Philanthropy, investments, and health

Steve also talked with reporter Felicitas von Peter, founder and managing partner of the Forum for Active Philanthropy, about the discussion he led on how giving, lending, and investing can be combined to help those who need it most. Participants in Steve’s session included leaders from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Morgan Stanley, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
