Better health moves humanity forward

At PATH, we are a global team of innovators working to accelerate health equity so all people and communities can thrive. We advise and partner with public institutions, businesses, grassroots groups, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges.

We’re global and local

Our team includes scientists, health professionals, business leaders, engineers, advocates, and experts from dozens of other specialties. We work in more than 70 countries to transform bold ideas into sustainable solutions that improve health and well-being for all.

Where we work

We’re focused on equity

Access to good health too often depends on where we were born, our race, gender, ethnicity, age, class, and other factors. The scope of our work is vast—because that’s what it takes to tackle health problems caused by complex systemic inequities.

Good health opens doors to education and economic opportunity for individuals and families. It strengthens communities and helps markets grow. It’s the foundation of a safer, more just, and more prosperous world for all of us. It moves humanity forward.

Our pioneering spirit lives on

Launched in 1977 by three intrepid researchers, PATH was a new kind of health organization: a nonprofit that would deliver the expertise, resources, and innovations of private industry to improve health for all.

The model we pioneered transformed the way the world thinks about health and development. And we’re still pioneering.

Today, we are harnessing the power of data and digital tools. Forging unexpected partnerships across borders and sectors. Defending against new disease threats and epidemics. Creating models to transform health care delivery. And fostering innovation in communities everywhere to bring good health—and the jobs and economic stability that come with it—within reach of more people faster.

We’re blazing a path forward

Roadblocks to health are everywhere. We could look away, but we choose to look ahead. Because we believe that when people are healthy, humanity moves forward. Better health means stronger countries, growing markets, and social progress.

Our task now is to identify, develop, and scale up the next wave of affordable, effective health solutions.

It’s a big job. But at PATH, we’re experienced. We’re passionate. We’re driven. We’re looking ahead to turn research into innovation and problems into plans. Because that’s what a path is—a way forward.
