About Us

Our Mission

PathCheck Foundation is a global nonprofit dedicated to creating healthy and resilient communities by protecting public health, containing pandemics, and strengthening economies, while preserving individual privacy through privacy preserving innovation and research at the intersection of technology and public health.  

Vision 

We are working toward a world where everyone can contribute to the health and resilience of their communities through empowering technologies and programs that enable collaboration between individuals, government, and organizations.  

Why 

Thoughtful public health technology and policy makes everyone healthier and safer. 

What 

PathCheck programs create open source software, standards, protocols, research, analysis, and policy through broad collaboration with stakeholders worldwide. We work at the intersection of technology and public health with a special focus on strategies that empower people to work together to protect their communities. Examples of our work include: 


  • The GAEN Mobile open source solution that powers exposure notification in states and countries around the world. 
  • The Boost-19 vaccination protocol and app that enables the rapid, reliable distribution of vaccinations, and monitoring of outcomes with app and paper-based solutions at scale. 
  • Our research and analysis has resulted in more than a dozen papers on a wide range of pressing policy and strategy issues for public public health.
  • Our events have convened and connected thought leaders and implementers across the technology, health, and public health communities.

How 

PathCheck is a community first. We are organized into a set of semi-autonomous programs staffed by a mix of professional volunteers, partners, collaborators, contractors, and employees. PathCheck provides a platform for social entrepreneurs to innovate, create, and deliver while supporting each other. We run fast to address the most pressing issues today and take a long-view building toward a better future. We release most of our work for free through open source or creative commons licenses. We’re funded through grants, charitable contributions, and revenue from services we provide to jurisdictions and organizations deploying our technologies. 

Who 

PathCheck is first and foremost a community. There are more than 2,400 people in our Slack community and dozens of partners in our Alliance. Every week, hundreds of professionals from around the world donate their time, energy, and talent to drive forward the PathCheck mission. Our community is supported by a team of paid staff and contractors.
