The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.
Technology plays a key role in achieving these objectives. CHAI’s digital health team works with a range of stakeholders from Ministries of Health, end users (e.g. healthcare providers, health system managers, patients), technology organizations, and donors to (1) deliver digital products that solve public health problems, (2) to support governments in scaling and sustaining digital products, and (3) to create an enabling digital ecosystem. Furthermore, CHAI’s digital health team plays a connecting role between technical and nontechnical stakeholders to ensure products are fit for purpose and scalable across use cases and countries.
