We've been strengthening public health in India for more than four decades.
India has tremendous health needs along with ever-expanding capacity to develop solutions. We’ve been working with public and private partners here since 1978 to address health challenges, share technical know-how, and, increasingly, support local innovation.
India oxygen crisis
PATH India's urgent work on medical oxygen
Now more urgent that ever, PATH India’s work on medical oxygen includes upgrading key oxygen generation facilities and advising state and local governments on procurement.
Focused on equity
Everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy life. We forge partnerships to develop, adapt, and scale up solutions to accelerate progress toward health equity.
Strengthening health systems
We are committed to reduce the burden of disease in India. We work with the governments of several states to bring lasting improvements to health systems.
We develop and implement new approaches to prevent, manage and eliminate infectious diseases, prepare for potential pandemics, address the challenges of TB, HIV, hepatitis and neglected tropical diseases such as visceral leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis, dengue, malaria and reduce mortality due to acute encephalitis syndrome. We provide technical support to various states to implement innovative solutions, institutionalize sustainable engagement models, strengthen surveillance, track and train healthcare workers, and collect and analyze data for these diseases.
We work with India’s leading vaccine manufacturers to develop and deliver lifesaving vaccines. We help stakeholders to do preclinical research on new candidates, conduct pivotal clinical evaluations and, ultimately, develop innovative approaches for new vaccine introduction and immunization system strengthening. With our partners, we developed the first- and second-ever Indian vaccines against Rotavirus. We have two decades of experience in advancing Japanese encephalitis immunization services in India. We test the scalability of new cold chain equipment, such as the freeze-preventive vaccine carrier which allows for safe transportation of vaccines.
India accounts for 40 percent of the global burden of low-birth weight babies and 17 percent of global maternal deaths. We collaborate with partners to strengthen newborn nutrition and provide essential health care interventions for mothers and babies to improve health outcomes. We enable access to tools to improve accurate screening and diagnosis of illness in children under five. We work with the government to increase access to affordable, high-quality reproductive health supplies. To tackle micronutrient malnutrition and anemia, we work with stakeholders to introduce fortified rice into the government’s food safety net programs.
We are at the forefront of enabling digital transformation in India. We support the development and implementation of digital tools across public health programs enhancing program effectiveness and the government’s ability to leverage the power of data. We have an expert system-integrating platform called the Impact Lab to support the ‘Lab To Market’ journey of innovators. We bring governments, non-profits, private sector, regulatory bodies and international organizations together for such innovations to be adopted by health systems locally and globally.
PATH’s India team also supports critical health projects in the region. We are spearheading efforts to reduce anti-microbial resistance in Sri Lanka, testing new treatment options against visceral leishmaniasis in Bangladesh and supporting the field trials of cold chain equipment for low resource settings in Nepal.
Our head office is in New Delhi.
We also have offices in Mumbai and Lucknow.
