  1. PATH, with support from UNICEF, is working to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate health care waste management models in two pilot townships in Myanmar. Improper health care waste management, including the unsafe disposal of used syringes and needles, can increase the likelihood of accidents among health workers. PATH trained health staff on good immunization waste management practices, introduced needle and hub cutters for health staff—devices used to separate the potentially infectious needle from the syringe body, and assigned and constructed safe disposal sites for sharps and infectious waste.These validated health care waste management models will help the Myanmar Ministry of Health Sports and Occupational and Environmental Health Division to minimize the environmental, occupational, and community health risks from health care waste generated at health facilities and by community-based midwives.

  2. The G6PD Operations Research Community of Practice (GORCoP) is a collaboration of researchers, organizations, and clinicians committed to advancing the introduction and scale-up of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) diagnostics in support of safe access to radical cure treatment for Plasmodium vivax malaria through operations research. There are several G6PD diagnostics available now and in the pipeline that have the potential to expand access to safe radical cure. The GORCoP seeks to understand the transitions that health systems will need to undergo and to inform best practices for undergoing these transitions.

  3. PATH's statement on the floor of the 72nd World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, calling on WHO to work with member states to ensure that they meet their budget targets on funding for health, because without sustainable domestic financing on health the world will never achieve UHC. To truly achieve UHC—and realize its health, economic, and social benefits—we must advance a UHC agenda that recognizes and prioritizes SRHR and delivers lifesaving and critical services to all people require them.
