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 has partnered with the Government in Lao PDR since 2014, supporting the MOH across several health programs: Supply Chain Strengthening, Malaria Elimination, and HIV and TB Access. In 2017, CHAI established a new partnership with Gavi, The Vaccines Alliance (Gavi) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Lao PDR to support the National Immunization Program (NIP) to smoothly transition from Gavi funding by 2022.
