Information is power—the power to overcome disease and illness and to make smart decisions about health services with the most impact. We develop and adapt digital health technologies that connect individuals, health care providers, and entire nations so they can take informed action to improve health and save lives.
Who we are:
We are a global team of experts with decades of experience in using information and communication technology to solve global health challenges. PATH and our partners unlock the power of digital by combining our technology skills with our expertise in public health and health systems, market dynamics, monitoring and evaluation, and communications and advocacy.
We improve health system performance and financial accountability to drive better health outcomes. We serve as a strategic advisor to governments, donors, and multilateral organizations. We are neutral brokers in developing and integrating technology-agnostic digital systems. We are conveners who bring together technology companies, user-centered design experts, and donors and funders with country stakeholders to develop modern and sustainable digital health solutions tailored for the unique needs of each country.
What we do:
Too many health initiatives have been based on best guesses, not data. Lack of access to the right information can lead to life-threatening consequences: stock-outs of essential medicines and supplies, delayed response to disease outbreaks, poor decisions by health clinicians and consumers, and ineffective or wasteful health care spending. We support countries in designing the information and communication systems they need to help ensure needed health services are reaching the most vulnerable families and communities.
Our cornerstone projects include:
