The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) was established in 2002 to increase access to care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS and to strengthen health systems in resource-poor countries. Over the past few years, CHAI has expanded the scope of our work to include access to high-quality treatment for malaria, new vaccines and essential treatments for common childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. CHAI has also increasingly supported governments to build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Currently, CHAI partners with governments in more than 25 countries while more than 70 countries directly benefit from the low-priced drugs and diagnostic test agreements that CHAI has negotiated.
CHAI has been supporting the Government of Nigeria to scale-up access to Essential Childhood Medicines in Nigeria since 2011. Current work focuses on increasing access to zinc and ORS for the treatment of childhood diarrhea, with some activities addressing access to antibiotics for childhood pneumonia. CHAI’s strategic approach for Essential Medicines Scale-Up in Nigeria employs building a multi-stakeholder coalition for scale-up, consisting of committed public, private, and non-governmental organizations. As a key partner in this coalition, CHAI will implement a zinc/ORS scale-up program in several states in Nigeria, and will continue to play a leading role in further developing this coalition.
