Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to saving lives, reducing the burden of disease and strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world.
As of 2015 there were approximately 83,000 PWIDs in Myanmar. Although, most HIV positive PWIDs are located in rural areas than in urban areas, only an estimated 27% of PWIDs nationally received an HIV test. CHAI’s work in Kachin, from 2014-2016, decentralized ART services to the township level through close partnership with community based organizations and Drop-In-Centers and resulted in Kachin State becoming the second largest provider of ART nationwide. However, a holistic healing of positive PWIDs is vital to their continued health and integration back into their communities.
In partnership with the National AIDS Program (NAP) and the National Drug Abuse Control Program (NDACP), CHAI will support this vulnerable population through the following activities: 1) dual training in methadone replacement/OST and ART to allow ART providers to better treat drugs adjustment and meet drug addiction recovery needs ; 2) establish satellite clinics with integrated ART and OST services to cater toward patients across the continuum of readiness to quit drugs, and 3) scale to neighboring Sagaing replicating CHAI’s health systems approach to decentralize ART in Kachin.
