About PATH Center for Malaria Control & Elimination

The PATH Center for Malaria Elimination and Control is accelerating progress against malaria through innovative tools, approaches, and partnerships.

Malaria remains a devastating disease that imposes massive health, social and economic hardships on families and countries where the disease is endemic. Approximately 400,000 people die from malaria every year.

Controlling and eventually eliminating malaria will bring enormous long-term benefits by contributing to improved maternal and child health, enhanced economic outcomes, and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. PATH is a leader in the battle to control and eliminate malaria in nations and regions with a long term ultimate goal to eradicate it globally.

The PATH Center for Malaria Control and Elimination leverages PATH's unique blend of technical expertise, relationships, and on-the-ground knowledge to identify promising new ideas, bring together collaborators, and accelerate development of strategies and tools for elimination. This work is intended to empower national governments to pursue the goal of eliminating malaria transmission once and for all.

Our robust portfolio includes projects includes promising projects in vaccines, diagnostics, drugs—both developing new drugs and using existing drugs in new ways, as well as system and service innovations. These projects span the full development cycle, from upstream R&D to field implementation and programmatic scale up.

The CMCE's work is powered by partnerships. We collaborate with ministries of health to strengthen health systems and create malaria-free zones; tech companies to use data in better and new ways; manufacturers to improve and develop drugs and diagnostics; global agencies like the World Health Organization; and governments to support evidence generation and policy formulation. We work closely with communities to understand local context and build skills.

CMCE projects are currently supported by grants from numerous funders, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, United States Agency for International Development, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and Unitaid, among others.
