Présentation entreprise :

ATH is a global nonprofit dedicated to achieving health equity. With more than 40 years of experience forging multisector partnerships, and with expertise in science, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales up innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing health challenges.

Through USAID’s MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity Consortium, the PATH DRC office was awarded funds in 2020 to conduct an assessment of the major challenges and bottlenecks to routine immunization at the subnational levels. These findings informed the development of a workplan to implement strategies that focus on putting people at the center while introducing and testing targeted interventions to foster resilient systems and communities, engage local partners, and improve quality and use of data. The overall goal of M-RITE is to support DRC’s Ministry of Health to improve the equitable coverage of childhood vaccines and reach zero-dose children and missed communities.
