About PATH Malaria

We envision a world where country leaders and their partners have the tools, evidence, financial capacity, human resources, and political will to control, eliminate, and eventually eradicate malaria.

PATH Malaria leverages a unique blend of technical expertise, relationships, and on-the-ground knowledge to identify promising new ideas, bring together collaborators, and accelerate development of strategies and tools for elimination. We focus on developing, introducing, and evaluating new tools and approaches; optimizing the delivery of current tools and approaches; improving data use through enhanced measurement tools, metrics, and information systems; and strengthening endemic country expertise to create sustainable systems. PATH-pioneered approaches have contributed to remarkable progress in malaria, with nearly 7 million lives saved since 2000.

Our robust portfolio includes promising projects in vaccines, diagnostics, drugs—both developing new drugs and using existing drugs in new ways, as well as system and service innovations. These projects span the full development cycle, from upstream R&D to field implementation and programmatic scale up.

Our work is powered by partnerships. We collaborate with ministries of health to strengthen health systems and create malaria-free zones; tech companies to use data in better and new ways; manufacturers to improve and develop drugs and diagnostics; global agencies like the World Health Organization; and governments to support evidence generation and policy formulation. We work closely with communities to understand local context and build skills.
