Annotation: Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH) is a nongovernmental international organization that works to improve the health of women and children in developing countries by focusing on the effectiveness, availability, safety, and appropriateness of technologies for health and family planning. Its programs bridge the gap between technologies and potential users through research and development, field assessment, technology transfer, communication, and other activities. Program areas include emerging and epidemic diseases, health technologies, maternal and child health, reproductive health, and vaccines and immunization.. PATH offers a reproductive health newsletter, Outlook, available from its office in Seattle. Some publications are available in Spanish.
