Partners in progress since 1994
PATH has been working in Ukraine for 28 years. As a trusted partner to the government and a broad range of local, national, and regional stakeholders, our team provides technical assistance, works to reduce the burden of infectious diseases, advocates for equity in access to care, introduces new technologies and approaches, and partners across sectors and oblasts to provide patient-centered care and support.
With expertise across a host of public health areas, we provide technical assistance to leaders and government agencies to facilitate critical decision-making, sound policy and program development, and sustainable health system improvement.
Training the trainers
Our local staff regularly prepares national trainers, provides on-the-job mentoring, and enhances the capacity of educational institutions. We also established regional technical assistance HUBs to facilitate the rapid adoption of new advances and build capacity countrywide.
PATH accelerates advocacy, communication, and social mobilization in public health area by forging unexpected partnerships, supporting operations of the regional coordination councils, and participating in technical working groups.
Since 2001, PATH has been supporting tuberculosis care and control efforts in Ukraine. Currently, these efforts take the form the USAID-funded Support TB Control Efforts in Ukraine project, a five-year initiative to reduce the TB epidemic through early detection and appropriate care for people living with TB, drug-resistant TB, or TB/HIV, and the UNITAID-funded ASCENT project is a two-and-a-half-year effort to help patients successfully complete their treatment through the use of digital adherence technologies, data-driven support interventions, and tools such as smart pill boxes. Together, these projects will improve the quality and efficiency of TB control approaches, introduce innovative new tools and approaches, and create a foundation for sustainable TB control efforts in Ukraine.
PATH currently works across 17 oblasts in Ukraine and maintains partnerships with Georgia, Belarus, and Bulgaria.
