About CHAI:
The Clinton Health Access Initiative

approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics;
lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to life-saving technologies;
and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and

Established in 2002 by President Clinton

collaboration with governments and NGO partners, CHAI has helped more than 2
million people access the medicines needed for treatment, which represents

countries. Building on its model, CHAI has expanded its scope to include
efforts to strengthen healthcare delivery systems and to combat malaria and
childhood illness.
