Breakthrough innovations that can save women and children now


These innovations can save lives

Which health innovations could save 1.2 million women and children by the end of 2015? Our new online feature shows how ten breakthrough solutions can transform health around the world.

Last week, PATH, the government of Norway, the United Nations (UN) Foundation, and the MDG Health Alliance debuted our publication to world leaders at the UN General Assembly. We're building support to tackle the top killers of women and children and urging global action to achieve UN Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5.

UNGA unplugged: the future of global health

We asked Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan, Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, PATH CEO Steve Davis, and many other leaders at the UN General Assembly to weigh in on what’s next in global health. Watch their videos to find out what they said.


Chlorhexidine can save babies' lives


"Workhorse antiseptic" a lifesaver for babies

A new version of chlorhexidine can save newborns’ lives, but we must “break the logjam of innovation” to reach the people who need it, writes Steve Davis. A video blog by PATH’s Patricia Coffey talks about our simple chlorhexidine solution—one of ten on our list of breakthroughs.




Meningitis vaccine shows dramatic impact

A study published in The Lancet found that the MenAfriVac® vaccine—developed by PATH and the World Health Organization—has cut incidence of meningitis by 94 percent in Chad, West Africa. More than 100 million people in ten African countries have been vaccinated with MenAfriVac® since 2010.


Our report to contributors

Support from our donors helped PATH touch the lives of 118 million people in 2012 and allowed us to reach new regions and tackle new unmet needs. Our report to contributors shows how, thanks to you, we are bringing high-impact solutions to the people who need them most.
