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 began work in Cameroon in 2007, with a focus on improving access to lifesaving HIV diagnosis, treatment, and care. CHAI helped the Ministry of Health to introduce and scale up pediatric and second-line antiretroviral therapy (ART) and improve laboratory systems to better diagnose the disease, including Early Infant Diagnosis (EID). Since then, CHAI has helped introduce point-of-care testing for HIV and innovative mobile health technology to improve turnaround time for EID results. We have helped to integrate EID, Viral Load (VL), and tuberculosis (TB) testing on one device, and we are working to increase access to newer and better medications for adults and children with HIV alongside the National AIDS Control Committee.
CHAI is also supporting the government in its efforts to save the lives of women and infants through mentoring of service providers and increasing access to long-acting contraceptives to help women safely plan their families. We have supported the government to introduce and scale up better treatment for severe malaria and are now helping to ensure that it is consistently available and properly used by health workers across the country.
To ensure the potency and delivery of lifesaving vaccinations, we are helping the government to improve the country’s cold chain supply system and introducing new and improved vaccines for diseases such as cancer-causing human papilloma virus (HPV) and polio. Most recently, CHAI has been supporting the government to develop a system of universal health coverage that will enable the country to provide affordable, quality care to all.
