PATH responds to COVID-19

Our role in responding

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, we are working to lessen its impact. Our experts are partnering with governments to establish emergency operations centers; advise on testing, treating, and managing the outbreak; and stand up digital and data systems that support real-time disease surveillance. To speed our response, PATH is temporarily pulling staff from other projects, such as malaria elimination and HIV advocacy.

Examples of our efforts:

  • In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, we are honored to house the DRC’s Presidential COVID Task Force in our Kinshasa office and work side-by-side with our government partners, providing technical and logistical support as they develop a national response plan.
  • In India, we’re partnering with private industry to develop data analytics, logistical solutions, and rapid diagnostics.
  • In Senegal, we’re supporting surveillance measures by utilizing and expanding existing systems originally developed for Ebola and malaria.
  • In Tanzania, we’re training health workers on WASH and other prevention measures and supporting the Ministry of Health in planning its response.
  • In the United States, our health technology engineers are providing design and fabrication support to manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline health workers in Seattle.
  • In Vietnam, we’re developing dashboards, mapping tools, case forms, and community-based surveillance systems that enable targeted response.

COVID-19 is a public health emergency.

We’re supporting governments around the world today to prepare health systems for outbreaks in their cities and deploy digital systems to do real-time disease surveillance. You can help.
