    United States
    New York
    Full Time
    Program (Division)
    Access Programs - HIV Access Team
    Additional Location Description
    Can be flexible on other US East Coast locations for the right candidate
  • 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


    The hallmark of the CHAI’s approach is simultaneous and intensive engagement on the demand and supply sides of the market. On the demand side, CHAI’s country teams help governments to overcome barriers to scale up treatment and prevention programs. Meanwhile, the CHAI global access teams work to address supply-side barriers to access and foster a healthy marketplace to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostic commodities. CHAI works to attract new suppliers, lower drug prices, encourage the adoption of stringent quality standards, and facilitate the uptake of important new or improved products. CHAI has played a particularly important role in the marketplace for pediatric antiretroviral therapy (ART), substantially expanding access to appropriate drugs and diagnostics to meet the unique needs of children.


    CHAI’s Access Program works to address barriers to commodity access and to foster a healthy marketplace, fundamentally changing the economics of global health to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostics. By securing lower prices for key commodities and improving laboratories in the developing world, we are helping patients access the treatment, care, and prevention services they need.
