Executive Vice President of Global Programs
Oliver Sabot is the Executive Vice President for Global Programs at the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), leading the design and execution of large-scale programs to reduce child mortality and transform health systems in more than 20 countries and managing the organization’s relationships with major global institutions. He joined CHAI in 2006 to develop and launch a new malaria program. Since that time, he has grown the program beyond its original vision to a central strategic pillar of the organization, with operations supporting 12 countries in Africa and Asia to increase access to effective treatment and plan and execute malaria control and elimination programs. Among other efforts, he and his team played a central role in the development and launch of the Affordable Medicines Facility-malaria, a new global initiative to dramatically increase access to quality malaria medicines through a global subsidy. Mr. Sabot also currently serves as the Chair of the Market Dynamics Committee of the Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, guiding the development of improved strategies to better leverage the institution’s $22 billion of investments to shape health product markets.
Prior to joining CHAI, Mr. Sabot worked at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, advising its Executive Director on public relations and policy. He also served as a founding staff member of Friends of the Global Fight, a nonprofit led by Jack Valenti to increase U.S. support for global health issues, where he helped drive the organization’s policy goals with the U.S. Congress and Administration. Mr. Sabot is the author of 15 scholarly articles on global health and malaria published by Cambridge University Press, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and The Lancet, among others.
