PATH

By Joanne Lu

Since its founding in 1977, PATH has become a giant in global health technology.

PATH works with a range of stakeholders and partners including, but not limited to, industry, governments, research institutions, and academia to address some of the world’s most pressing health problems, including those affecting mothers and newborns
