Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems and expanding access to care and treatment in the developing world. CHAI’s solution-oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to lifesaving technologies; and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Since its inception, CHAI’s programs have helped more than 11.8 million people in more than 70 countries have access to CHAI-negotiated prices for HIV/AIDS medicines, saving the global health community billions of dollars.

One of the hallmarks of CHAI is simultaneous and intensive engagement on the demand and supply sides of the market to improve access to essential medicines for patients in developing countries. While CHAI’s Drug Access Team (DAT) works to address supply-side barriers to access and to foster a healthy marketplace to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines at lower prices, CHAI’s country teams partner with national governments to strengthen the systems required to deliver treatment – by scaling up and strengthening care and treatment programs and procurement and supply management.
