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.

CHAI launched its viral hepatitis program in 2015 with the objective of catalyzing the launch of national HCV screening and treatment programs in seven high burden countries in Africa and Asia, driving increased affordability of medicines and diagnostics across LMICs. Building off initial lessons learned, efforts to dive scale-up towards elimination are underway.
