Clinton Health Access Initiative Inc

Mission

The Clinton Health Access Initiative is dedicated to improving access to healthcare for all individuals. Residents of developing countries often cannot afford and do not have access to systems that provide basic healthcare, including medicines for diseases that are preventable, treatable or curable. This is where CHAI intervenes – by partnering with governments and working with other NGOs to provide solutions to the biggest challenges impeding effective healthcare in developing countries.  Using a business-oriented approach, CHAI endeavors to alter commodity markets to decrease the costs of care and treatment, as well as expand access to health services.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Access

Increasing access to and lowering the cost of HIV/AIDS treatment. Through negotiations with pharmaceutical companies and lab suppliers, CHAI has successfully lowered the cost of HIV/AIDS drugs and diagnostics. As a result, more than 70 countries participating in CHAI’s Purchasing Consortium now have access to HIV/AIDS medicines and tests at deeply reduced prices, which represents more than 90% of the people living with HIV/AIDS globally.

Population(s) Served

Making HIV/AIDS treatment accessible for children. Working with national governments and other partners, CHAI has achieved an 80 percent price reduction for the leading pediatric HIV/AIDS treatments. CHAI’s Pediatric Program now enables the treatment of more than 265,000 HIV positive children. While only one in forty children in need of treatment were receiving it when CHAI began its pediatric program in 2005; today, roughly one in three children in need of treatment are receiving HIV care.
 
Preventing HIV infection from mothers to their children. Despite the gains in care and treatment, a child dies every three seconds from AIDS, and the failure to prevent HIV transmission from mothers to children is resulting in 430,000 new HIV-positive children annually. CHAI’s current work aims to prevent new infections by increasing access to services and implementing WHO recommended protocols for prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV.

Population(s) Served

Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of global health financing. Despite over $15 billion spent per year on HIV and significant scale up over recent years, only 5 million out of the 33 million people living with the disease are currently on treatment. CHAI is working with donors and national governments to better understand current funding flows and costs per outcome, and identify areas for significant improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of HIV and broader health funding. By improving the efficiency of spending, CHAI believes that more patients can benefit from existing funding and that donors will be more willing to increase funding levels over time.

Population(s) Served

Expanding access to healthcare in underserved areas. Up to 80 percent of the developing world lives in rural communities where access to healthcare is often limited. In several countries, including Rwanda and Liberia, CHAI is working to dramatically improve the way primary healthcare is delivered by tackling health system bottlenecks in a comprehensive fashion and working hand-in-hand with governments to augment their capacity to manage their system.
 
Expanding human resources for health. Despite reductions in prices, HIV/AIDS treatments cannot reach people in need without capable, motivated health workers. In an effort to increase health support for more than just HIV/AIDS, CHAI is working in key countries to develop and strengthen innovative programs that recruit and train medical staff.

Population(s) Served

Scaling-up and sustaining effective malaria control. CHAI
has worked to dramatically increase access to the most effective malaria drugs, called ACTs, by helping to design, launch, and execute a new global initiative that lowers the price of the medicines at the top of the supply chain. Through CHAI’s support, this initiative has already dropped the price of the drugs of by 80% and delivered more than 6 million additional treatments to countries with a high burden of malaria.
 
Accelerating uptake of life-saving vaccines. The recent development of new vaccines that provide protection against two of the major agents of pneumonia (pneumococcus bacteria) and diarrhea (rotavirus) have the potential to prevent as many as 725,000 child deaths each year. CHAI’s new Vaccine Program is working in three countries to accelerate uptake of these life-saving vaccines while strengthening the core systems that support national immunization delivery.
