About PATH

 

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.  

 

Respiratory Care Management (RCM) program

 

The second wave of coronavirus pandemic in India has quickly spiraled into a devastating crisis. Reported daily new infections have crossed the 400,000 mark (world record) while daily reported deaths are more than 2,700. Moreover, experts suggest that the peak is yet to come. Lockdowns and curfews have been enforced in varying degrees across the country which are hurting livelihoods - particularly of those who are already vulnerable. Health systems across the country are collapsing - there is an acute shortage of hospital beds, personnel, drugs, testing kits, and life-saving oxygen.

 

PATH has been working in the field of oxygen delivery for almost a decade. Our work has brought together advocacy and policy, market development, engineering, product design / innovation, and health system strengthening. PATH globally has provided medical oxygen technical assistance in over 10 geographies including currently in 14 states in India. PATH is a key member of the ACT-A COVID-19 Oxygen Emergency Task Force led by the WHO. PATH’s team is made up of both global and country-based experts with in-depth understanding of oxygen ecosystem providing support. We have tools and expertise to support rigorous facility oxygen needs assessments, quantification, costing and oxygen distribution network design and facility selection.

 

In India, PATH has been working closely with the Indian states of Maharashtra, Punjab and Karnataka providing technical assistance for respiratory care. In the last year or so, PATH has coordinated across Ministry of Health, State health departments, district authorities, various facility level functionaries and vendors to address delays and fast track installation of Government of India / PM Cares approved PSA oxygen plants. PATH teams are engaged in daily monitoring of district-wise availability of resources, storage capacity, projection of oxygen inventory requirement, procurement coordination and related market shaping work.

 

Currently, PATH is working with government officials, donors, and partners to providing technical assistance to 9 states for helping them become Self-sufficient in oxygen. Under this project, we are supporting state governments to:

  • Procure and provide oxygen equipment to enable community-based care.

  • Provide technical assistance to setup and install oxygen equipment in healthcare facilities.

  • Address the most critical bottlenecks in the oxygen supply by providing critical care assistance to support the management of a coherent demand & supply matching, micro-planning, and forecasting to disaggregate the oxygen supply across the country and support states in addressing the ongoing crisis.
