    Program (Division)
    Access Programs - Global Markets Team
  • Overview

    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 Markets Team (GMT) is responsible for envisioning, executing, and monitoring market shaping interventions aimed at improving the efficiency of health commodity markets for lower income countries. These interventions range from traditional policy-led and grant-financed initiatives such as pooled procurement, coordinated ordering, strategic demand forecasting, and regulatory harmonization to more innovative credit enhancement mechanisms such as volume guarantees (VGs), advance market commitments (AMCs), and working capital facilities. GMT collaborates closely with internal and external stakeholders to evaluate the public health impact of a proposed intervention and ensure alignment with current and future policy goals.

    Please see the following press release for an example of the types of agreements CHAI helps negotiate: https://clintonhealthaccess.org/new-high-quality-antiretroviral-therapy-launched-south-africa-kenya-90-low-middle-income-countries-reduced-price/
