Job Description

PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide.

The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the role of medical oxygen as a lifesaving therapy for patients struggling to breathe. It also revealed the long-existing issue of the oxygen access gap by creating an overwhelming demand for oxygen technologies and supplies across health facilities in many countries, especially where that balance is already threatened. Closing this gap will require an integrated set of solutions and investment in strengthening the oxygen delivery systems—for COVID-19 and beyond. PATH is working to support countries in planning and executing a respiratory care plan to meet the demands of COVID-19. It also helped to pursue strategies to prioritize and improve access to oxygen therapy and other equipment essential to respiratory care as an integral part of health system strengthening beyond the pandemic response. This work continues under the Strengthening Oxygen Utilization and Respiratory Care Ecosystem project (SOURCE).
