More About the Clinton Health Access Initiative
In 2002, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) began as the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative to address the HIV/AIDS crisis in the developing world and strengthen health systems there. Taking the lead from governments and working with partners, CHAI works to improve markets for lifesaving medicines and diagnostics, lower the costs of treatments, and expand access to life-saving technologies — creating a sustainable model that can be owned and maintained by governments. Today CHAI also works to increase access to high-quality treatment for malaria, accelerate the rollout of new vaccines, and lower infant mortality.
CHAI collaborates closely with governments and other partners to improve the management and organization of in-country health systems and global commodity markets while addressing key health systems barriers. Across all programs, CHAI seeks to have rapid and large-scale impact while at the same time ensuring solutions are sustainable and can be owned and maintained by government partners.
CHAI became a separate nonprofit organization on January 1, 2010. Visit clintonhealthaccess.org to learn more.
