Communications Officer, BID Initiative and Global Health Security Partnership

PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

PATH’s Global Health Security (GHS) Partnership aims to strengthen disease surveillance, laboratories, and information systems in Senegal, Tanzania, DRC, and Vietnam. As one of several global partners supporting the US CDC's Global Health Security Agenda to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to infectious disease threats worldwide, PATH partners with international and US Government stakeholders to leverage a core technical platform within and across countries, facilitate cross-national learning networks, and catalyze health systems improvement through hands-on field support in high-risk districts.Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the BID Initiative’s strategy is to work in partnership with the Ministry of Health Community Development Gender Elderly and Children to enhance immunization and overall health service delivery through improved data collection, quality, and use. The BID Initiative will develop and deploy a holistic and scalable approach that focuses on information system products, data management policies, and the practices of people that use them in order to enable evidence-based decision making.
