What we do

PATH recognizes that digitally enabled health care and timely data use can positively change the very nature of health care and health systems, and therefore speed progress toward health equity. Rather than focusing on deploying technology alone, PATH takes a systematic approach to digital transformation. To move health care into the digital age, PATH supports countries as they move away from fragmented digital health tools toward informed and empowered digital leadership, the implementation of global digital health standards, and an interoperable, human–centered, and financially sustainable digital ecosystem.

We work across several cross–cutting areas including diagnostics, epidemic and pandemic preparedness, primary healthcare, immunization, health system strengthening, market dynamics, and several disease areas such as malaria, HIV, COVID-19, and NCDs.
