Clinton Health Access Initiative
Clinton Health Access Initiative

The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) was founded in 2002 by former US President Bill Clinton and his long-term advisor Ira Magaziner, on the principle that it was unacceptable that millions of people were dying each year of HIV/AIDS in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean while treatment was readily available in wealthier countries. CHAI found the arguments made at that time that treating people with HIV in resource-poor settings was too expensive or too complicated, as completely unfounded. CHAI has since then, played a significant role in helping to save the lives of millions of HIV-infected people by lowering the cost of treatment and scaling up high-quality systems to deliver care around the world.
