The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) was established in 2002 to increase access to care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS and to strengthen health systems in resource-poor countries. Over the past few years, CHAI has expanded the scope of our work to include access to high-quality treatment for malaria, new vaccines and essential treatments for common childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. CHAI has also increasingly supported governments to build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Currently, CHAI partners with governments in more than 25 countries while more than 70 countries directly benefit from the low-priced drugs and diagnostic test agreements that CHAI has negotiated.
The fight against HIV/AIDS remains central to the CHAI mission and to the work of this team. CHAI’s global HIV program supports 23 country teams and partner governments on HIV financing, elimination of mother-to-child transmission (eMTCT) and paediatric HIV, male circumcision, and overall scale-up of HIV service delivery. More recently, the program has taken on new initiatives around Global Fund technical assistance and costing HIV service delivery models.
Prompted by partner governments and slow progress on global and country targets, CHAI is expanding our work on TB. TB is the leading cause of death of people living with HIV/AIDS yet progress has been slow to control TB and TB/HIV co-infection. Within this same global team, we are launching work on TB and Mining and hope to expand our TB programming to include TB/HIV co-infection and paediatric TB.
Our third workstream is focused around health financing through which we are helping nine partner governments improve their understanding of resource needs through appropriate target setting and determining cost implications of reaching those targets, improve the management of existing resources through resource mapping and identifying efficiencies, and secure and sustain health funding to reduce dependency on external aid over time and enable greater country ownership.
