Advocacy and Policy


When it comes to improving global health, smart policies and robust resources can make all the difference between a promising idea and an accessible health solution. To motivate policymakers to draft policies and sponsor initiatives to strengthen global health, we:

  • Gather evidence through PATH’s technical expertise and partnerships.
  • Package and disseminate evidence to policymakers and influencers.
  • Create momentum among stakeholders on key issues.
