Michael Free, a citizen of Great Britain, has spent the past five decades in the service of creating and introducing appropriate and affordable technologies that address the health care needs of underserved populations in developing countries. Starting in 1977, Dr. Free helped to build a new nonprofit organization, now known as PATH, committed to building partnerships with the private for-profit sector to solve special health care needs in the developing world. Through that unique organization, he has overseen the development of specialized engineering and biotechnology facilities, human resources networks and strategies that have led to the advancement and wide-scale use of more than 30 technologies, and the generation of a pipeline product development portfolio involving more than 40 additional products that address problems of health care in low-infrastructure and underserved communities around the world.
