  2. People at risk for or living with HIV have an elevated risk of mental health morbidities. Poor mental health among these key populations can reduce quality of life and impact care seeking, adherence to and continuation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)—two critical interventions for treating and preventing HIV. Seeing this gap in successful HIV care, the USAID/PATH Healthy Markets project sought to make mental health care more accessible for people at risk for or living with HIV.

  3. A great deal of knowledge already exists in the global health community regarding maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) medical devices and the challenges/barriers they face. But this knowledge is currently scattered across a variety of donor, partner, country, and academic sources, and as a result, is not easily accessible to the broader community. As such, PATH—under the Market Dynamics for MNCH Medical Devices project (MD4MD)—conducted a rapid desk research exercise focused on compiling information that was either publicly available or easily accessible, including: published literature, multilateral organization resources (such as policy briefs, technical reports, and guidelines); implementing partner projects (such as assessments, landscapes, and technical reports); donor investment documents; and expert interviews with relevant project leads and medical device experts.This evidence review focuses on eight specific devices: (1) manual blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer); (2) electric bCPAP device; (3) neonatal resuscitation device; (4) x-ray radiography machine; (5) point-of-care hemoglobin meter; (6) infusion device; (7) ultrasound (app-based “pocket” devices); and (8) ultrasound (traditional portable devices).The goal of these documents is to (1) summarize for policymakers and health system leaders the most important barriers that MNCH devices face, and (2) highlight potential interventions and key knowledge gaps to prioritize with future investments.

  5. Together with over 400 external stakeholders from across 50 countries, PATH has crafted a new institutional strategy that responds to the current crises we face as a global community, to the needs and priorities of our local partners, and to the resounding calls for the continued transformation of our sector. To bring our new strategy to life for our external partners, we’ve developed a strategy brochure. The brochure explains why PATH exists (our mission), what we will do (our priorities) and, perhaps most importantly, how we will do it (our change strategies).
