The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to our mission of saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries. We work at the invitation of governments to support them and the private sector to create and sustain high-quality health systems.
CHAI was founded in 2002 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the goal of dramatically reducing the price of life-saving drugs and increasing access to these medicines in the countries with the highest burden of the disease. Over the following two decades, CHAI has expanded its focus. Today, along with HIV, we work in conjunction with our partners to prevent and treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. Our work has also expanded into cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other non-communicable diseases, and we work to accelerate the rollout of lifesaving vaccines, reduce maternal and child mortality, combat chronic malnutrition, and increase access to assistive technology. We are investing in horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems through programs in human resources for health, digital health, and health financing. With each new and innovative program, our strategy is grounded in maximizing sustainable impact at scale, ensuring that governments lead the solutions, that programs are designed to scale nationally, and learnings are shared globally.
At CHAI, our people are our greatest asset, and none of this work would be possible without their talent, time, dedication and passion for our mission and values. We are a highly diverse team of enthusiastic individuals across 40 countries with a broad range of skillsets and life experiences. CHAI is deeply grounded in the countries we work in, with majority of our staff based in program countries. Learn more about our exciting work: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org

CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.
In Cambodia, Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), including diabetes, hypertension and eye health conditions, are becoming among the highest causes of morbidity and mortality, especially among older populations. Despite this, availability of services remains low in the public sector; only 10% of health centers and 50% of hospitals are able to provide the WHO Package for Essential NCDs, and there are only 18 vision centers nationwide. WHO estimates that yearly only about 1% of the target population is currently screened for NCDs. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has made a significant commitment to dramatically increase access to NCD services through investments from a pooled donor and government funding mechanism. To support the RGC, CHAI secured a new investment aiming to rapidly expand service availability for Cambodians, upskilling health centers and community workers in screening for NCDs and referring patients for appropriate care. The program has four key goals:
