Smart partnerships

We work in partnership with governments. Rather than implementing additional programs and parallel health systems, we work at the invitation of governments to strengthen and sustain their own capacity to provide long-term healthcare to their citizens.

Big impact

We take on the programs most likely to create massive and lasting change. CHAI aims to work on large, catalytic, "game-changing" opportunities rather than small implementation projects.

Urgent action

We are action-oriented and impatient. It is unacceptable that millions of people continue to die every year from diseases that we can prevent and cost-effectively treat. CHAI's staff are driven by this urgency. We work in many areas where others can't or won't.

CHAI and partners announce a new agreement to help save mothers’ lives in low-income countries

An agreement announced today will reduce the achievable cost per use of the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment (NASG) by over 75 percent and expand access to this innovative new product, which has been shown to safely and effectively reduce mortality due to post-partum hemorrhage, a leading cause of the nearly 290,000 maternal deaths reported annually around the world. The agreement represents a partnership between the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc., the Safe Motherhood Program at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the Blue Fuzion Group, which supplies the product – the Lifewrap NASG.

CHAI and partners expand Hispaniola Malaria Elimination Efforts

CHAI is proud to be part of a collaborative consortium working to eliminate malaria in Hispaniola by 2020 and create a malaria-free zone across the Caribbean. “Malaria was very nearly eliminated from Hispaniola in the 1960s, but funding and operational planning were insufficient to get the job done. This consortium has the exciting opportunity to help Haiti and the Dominican Republic finally wipe out malaria in the Caribbean and end a disease that has been a burden there since it was first introduced 500 years ago,” said Justin Cohen, Ph.D., M.P.H., senior director, Global Malaria.
