Overview

CHAI began operating in Nigeria in 2007 with a focus on increasing access to pediatric HIV treatments. Today, we continue to work with national and state governments to improve the lives of children. We are helping to accelerate the introduction of new vaccines and strengthen immunization delivery services across the country, and improve access to essential medicines to treat malaria, diarrhea and pneumonia, the largest killers of children under five.

CHAI works with the government to protect mothers by increasing awareness and access to essential family planning services to reduce unintended pregnancies; building management systems to ensure the delivery of high quality delivery services to prevent deaths of both women and infants that occur around labor and delivery; and supporting the government to create sustainable revenue streams to finance these programs. We also aim to reduce the prices of essential medicines, diagnostics, and other health products. We have successfully introduced life-saving pediatric and adult medicines to combat HIV, including the World Health Organization (WHO)-preferred first-line regimen, TLD. Using this same model, CHAI works with the government and partners to drive uptake of diagnostics and treatments for hepatitis C, malaria, syphilis and cervical cancer.
