PATH: Catalyzing global health with innovations fueled by passion and public-private collaborations

Matt Steele, M.P.H., Ph.D., Clinical and Field Research Coordinator PATH

Lab results on the spot in the bush, diagnostic tools delivered by backpack, or a village clinic equipped with instrumentation that runs without power . . . these point-of-care diagnostics are economical, practical, and realistic solutions for alleviating poor health around the world. All are innovations made possible by PATH, the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health.

Founded 33 years ago, PATH is a nonprofit whose 900 staff members work in 70 underdeveloped countries to improve lives where the needs are the greatest.

Meet Matthew Steele, who leads technology development teams in conducting clinical and field research in developing countries. He will share the role of product development partners in developing innovative solutions to global health problems. Hear about how PATH is bringing appropriate and sustainable technology to impoverished communities throughout the world.
