About CHAI:
The Clinton Health Access
Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening
integrated health systems in the developing world and expanding access to care
and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. CHAI’s solution-oriented
approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics;
lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to life-saving technologies;
and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and
treatment programs. Established in 2002 by President Clinton as the Clinton
HIV/AIDS Initiative, CHAI initially focused on addressing the limited access to
HIV/AIDS treatment faced by developing countries, where more than 90 percent of
individuals living with HIV/AIDS reside. By working in collaboration with
governments and NGO partners, CHAI has helped more than 2 million people access
the medicines needed for treatment, which represents nearly half of all the people
living with HIV and on treatment in developing countries. Building on its
model, CHAI has expanded its scope to include efforts to strengthen healthcare
delivery systems and to combat malaria and childhood illness.
