Eliminating Infectious Disease
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from diseases that we know how to cure. PATH's approach centers on using data to bring treatment to people who need it most.

What they do
As a nonprofit whose work reaches over 70 countries, PATH’s aim is to ensure equity in access to health care. For PATH, that means everything from eradicating infectious diseases like malaria to supporting broad health initiatives like access to adequate nutrition.
What our partnership does
Tableau Foundation works in partnership with PATH on a number initiatives that rely on visualizing data to understand and take action against health crises. Our flagship initiative Visualize No Malaria, is a five-year campaign to eliminate malaria in Zambia that can serve as a model for other countries to do the same.
Visualize No Malaria
Malaria is treatable, but 435,000 people die from it each year—often because health officials lack the tools to monitor the disease. PATH's data-driven systems are enabling health workers to finally eradicate malaria.
