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’s Tuberculosis Access Team delivers transformative interventions with our government partners to urgently reduce TB mortality in low- and middle- income countries in Africa and South East Asia. Despite having highly effective drugs for drug-susceptible TB since the 1950’s, TB is now the 9th leading cause of global mortality and the leading cause of death from infectious disease. The Tuberculosis Access team works to facilitate the identification and rapid testing and treatment of all TB patients. To achieve this, the team helps to shape and support ministry of health TB interventions and programs across Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. On the global side, the team interacts with donors, manufacturers, multilateral agencies and other partners to identify and implement market interventions. Team priorities include: 1) scale-up of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) treatment; 2) promotion of molecular diagnostic testing and drug susceptibility testing; 3) TB preventative treatment; and 4) improving the affordability and access to key TB drugs and diagnostics.
