Overview

CHAI began working in Central America and Hispaniola in 2014 and is currently helping the governments of Panama, Honduras, Guatemala, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic advance malaria elimination goals. Since then, CHAI has supported development and strengthening of community health worker networks to better detect, diagnose, and treat malaria cases in high-burden communities. The success of our work in the region has been due to a comprehensive technical support in surveillance, case management, and vector control. We have helped introduce new and targeted interventions such as Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS), rapid diagnostic tests, and electronic tools to improve data and usage of surveillance systems. Since 2018, CHAI has been instrumental in mobilizing resources in the region, culminating in the development of the Regional Malaria Elimination Initiative (RMEI), a co-blended US$100 million financing mechanism that combines funding from the endemic countries, and global funders.

More recently, CHAI started supporting the COVID-19 response in Latin America and the Caribbean. In Ecuador and Guatemala, our program is focused on strengthening oxygen technical capacity including improving hospital infrastructure, training health workers on clinical aspects of oxygen therapy, and lab technicians to forecast and procure oxygen- related commodities and maintain equipment. We are also helping to gather key market information and share evidence and best practices about new diagnostic and therapeutic tools with the purpose of strengthening capacity at all levels of care in the region.
