  1. Access to consistent, reliable, and high-quality electricity is especially critical for health systems that rely on electromedical devices for patient diagnosis and treatment. There are countless examples of facilities across developing countries that cannot properly carry out their work without access to electricity or that have lost expensive electromedical devices, lab equipment, and critical oxygen equipment due to poor power quality.The Electricity Planning Guide is designed to inform country stakeholders on how to improve the way electromedical devices are deployed and used at health care facilities in low- and middle-income countries. The guide provides information on electricity availability, quality, and cost in selected countries, and includes recommendations for deployment of electromedical devices. Though the guide focuses on examples that are specific to medical oxygen delivery devices and pulse oximeters, the recommendations hold general applicability to other electromedical devices.This resource is part of the Oxygen Delivery Toolkit: Resources to plan and scale medical oxygen. The materials provided within the toolkit can be used together or separately, as needed. The complete toolkit is available at www.path.org/oxygen-delivery-toolkit.

  2. The UK Government established the Fleming Fund to respond to the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a One Health Initiative to fight AMR in low- and middle-income countries. In Vietnam, with support from the Fleming Fund and FHI 360 Vietnam, PATH will work and support the Vietnam Medical Services Administration, the Department of Animal Health, and surveillance laboratories to strengthen data systems to help combat AMR.

  3. As the backbone of health systems, primary health care is where smart investments and improvements in accessibility, availability, and quality are direly needed—not only to prevent and manage COVID-19, but also to protect against future outbreaks and accelerate progress toward health for all. We must work across sectors to protect communities by maintaining essential health services, leveraging ingenuity and innovation to adapt primary health care, and ultimately building stronger, more resilient health systems.In this brief, we present the work we are doing in partnership with governments and communities to protect essential services and the opportunities that can accelerate long-needed shifts toward more people-centered and responsive primary health care, systems that will last long past when this crisis abates.

  4. National malaria control programs (NMCPs) are frequently faced with making decisions that require trade-offs in order to best allocate scarce resources to control and eliminate malaria. With limited budgets, NMCPs need to choose how to fund staff, research, operations, essential drugs and diagnostics, and many other items in a manner that maximizes the potential impact on reducing malaria. A mismatch between product characteristics and NMCP need will result in overspending and opportunity costs because those wasted funds could have been used elsewhere.This fact sheet explores these potential downstream consequences for NMCPs of upstream decisions made during the product development process on two examples related to diagnostics used in malaria case management.

  5. The Program for the Advancement of Malaria Outcomes (PAMO) is a flagship malaria program for the U.S. government President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) in Zambia. PAMO helps the GRZ accelerate progress towards eliminating local malaria infection and disease. Implemented by PATH, PAMO supports GRZ at the national level through the National Malaria Elimination Centre (NMEC) and in four high malaria burden provinces: Luapula, Muchinga, Eastern, and Northern.This brief provides a high-level summary of PAMO's work.
