  1. 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.

  2. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Africa CDC, and a number of country governments have advised people to wear non-medical masks in public when community transmission of COVID-19 may be widespread. Faced with shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE)—and in order to reserve the use of medical-grade masks for health care workers—homemade cloth masks can help reduce the spread of large droplets if used correctly. PATH has reviewed and consolidated guidance on the use of homemade cloth masks for use in communities.

  3. As COVID-19 spreads around the world, PATH in India is working to lessen its impact. PATH is partnering with governments, innovators, and peers across the country to plug the gaps in health systems and provide support to develop and strengthen systems that are preventing, identifying, tracking, and responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. This includes policy, preparedness, information, education and communications support, capacity-building and strengthening, digital and data strategies, accelerating innovations, and collaboration with partners.

  4. SARS-CoV-2: PATH’S RESPONSEFor more than 40 years, PATH has been working to increase access to health interventions, improve quality of care, and achieve health equity. With expertise in global health security, vaccines and immunization, data systems, surveillance and diagnostics under one roof, health experts at PATH can implement holistic solutions. Today, our global team of more than 1,400 is at work in 70 countries, partnering across ministries, governments, and the private sector to develop and roll out lifesaving vaccines, create affordable diagnostic tools, and scale our impact through advocacy and policy efforts.For the COVID-19 outbreak, we are supporting the immediate response by expanding our existing work to help countries be ready to deploy testing, surveillance, mitigation strategies, and solutions to improve health systems. We’re also helping countries identifying health systems strengthening opportunities that will address longer-term concerns.

  5. PATH comments on the Executive Board's agenda item on transforming the approach to health in the digital age. PATH recommends that WHO catalyze and align global support for country priorities and goals around data and digital, encourages the development of prioritized and costed country investment roadmaps, and the development of a singular governance approach for data and digital within WHO.
