Overview

CHAI began work in Tanzania in 2002, helping the government create its National AIDS Control Program to deliver access to lifesaving antiretroviral (ARV) medication, particularly in hard to reach rural areas of the country.

Today, CHAI works in four areas: HIV, malaria, vaccines, and reproductive health. We are helping to increase access to critical vaccines through improvements to the supply chain and strategic planning for routine immunizations along with the introduction of new vaccines. We are continuing to work with the National AIDS Control program to accelerate the government’s commitment to the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals and are helping to close the treatment gap for children with HIV through improved access to early infant diagnosis (EID) and viral load monitoring at the point-of-care.

With funding from Comic Relief, CHAI is partnering with the National Malaria Control Program, the Reproductive Child Health Section, and Pharmacy Council and Private Health Laboratory Board to implement interventions to diagnose and treat febrile illness in children for better management of malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea - the largest killers of children under five. We are also working to improve access to critical family planning tools to help save lives and improve economic outcomes for women.
