Strengthening health systems to support healthy communities
PATH has worked in South Asia for decades, partnering with governments and local organizations to strengthen health systems. PATH began working in Nepal in 2014 and has since been expanding and scaling efforts to make good health possible for more people.
Collaborating for impact
With decades of experience building relationships in the region, PATH knows that strong partnerships are the key to health equity. In Nepal, PATH supports government and non-governmental partners to strengthen health systems across the country.
Health equity digital tools
Unequal access to digital tools can deepen inequalities. But in Nepal, PATH is developing and implementing evidence-based, collaborative, and holistic approaches so that digital tools help more people access the care they need.
With innovative approaches to vaccine development and delivery, PATH is working with the government of Nepal to increase immunization coverage in Nepal. This includes work with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and World Health Organization to develop an effective vaccine against shigella, a bacterial infection that affects more than 1 million people annually in low and middle-income countries.
In Nepal, PATH partners with local organizations to treat and eliminate infectious diseases. For example, PATH is implementing innovative solutions for increasing TB case notification and treatment adherence. As part of pandemic response, PATH is supporting environmental surveillance for detecting and monitoring the spread of COVID-19. These activities, among others, are contributing to PATH’s growing health system strengthening portfolio in the country.
In South Asia, PATH has decades of experience supporting healthy pregnancies by establishing comprehensive lactation management centers; strengthening nutrition by introducing rice fortification; and ensuring safe pregnancy and delivery. PATH is supporting family health in Nepal by advancing newborn care, improving nutrition, and promoting sexual and reproductive health care for women and girls.
PATH is playing a pivotal role in the movement to stamp out neglected tropical diseases. In Nepal, PATH implemented a pharmacovigilance program to improve treatment options for visceral leishmaniasis (VL), a deadly parasitic disease that affects 90,000 people every year. PATH also partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to advance diagnostics and case detection for VL.
