Overview

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org

CHAI launched its Viral Hepatitis program in 2015 with the goal of catalyzing public sector screening and treatment programs in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). Following the launch of hepatitis C programs in seven countries (Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Vietnam), CHAI is now applying the techniques it has used successfully to improve access to HIV/AIDS and malaria treatment in developing countries to aim for the elimination of hepatitis C and the achievement of a hepatitis B-free generation. The program continues to focus on lowering the cost of diagnosis and treatment, while supporting ministries of health to implement smart, data-driven strategies for scaling up access to services. On the global side, the team interacts with donors, manufacturers, multilateral agencies and other partners to identify and implement necessary market-based interventions. In country, CHAI’s work ranges from helping governments select and source the right medicines and diagnostics, training health care workers in screening and treatment, designing the right service delivery mechanisms, implementing monitoring and evaluation systems, and mobilizing resources for program implementation.
