USAID Funding PATH Projects To Improve Health In Resource-Poor Settings
USAID this week announced investments in two new projects to be led by the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), according to a USAID press release. One project is aimed at reducing the cost and increasing the availability of tools known to prevent post-partum bleeding, the leading cause of maternal death worldwide, the release notes. The other "aims to identify, develop and introduce new health tools and technologies that can be used in rural, low-resource settings in the developing world where access to health facilities and electricity is not available," the release writes (10/18).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
