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, health care delivery organizations, 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.
