press release

Last week, PATH president and CEO Steve Davis joined more than 2,500 world leaders in business, academia, and civil society at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss the state of the world. Health was a cornerstone of this year's meeting. In two separate interviews, Steve talked about PATH's work to solve pressing global health issues and reflected on the role of investments and philanthropy in improving health.

Resilient dynamism

In an interview with Hub Culture Davos reporter Edie Lush, Steve discussed this year's conference theme--resilient dynamism--and how PATH demonstrates this through the successful meningitis A vaccine, MenAfriVac, and through our continuing efforts to develop a malaria vaccine and reduce deadly childhood diarrhea.

Participants in Steve's session included leaders from the Children's Investment Fund Foundation, Morgan Stanley, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
