Clinton Health Access Initiative releases 2018 Annual Report
We are pleased to release the Clinton Health Access Initiative’s 2018 Annual Report.
We thank our many partners and donors for their tireless commitment to saving lives and ensuring that all people, no matter where they live, have access to quality, affordable health services.
The theme for this year’s report is ‘Our Approach in Action’ and you will find examples in each program section of a time that CHAI’s approach was successfully applied to support our partners toward our mission.
Highlights of the report include:
- A breakthrough pricing agreement to significantly lower the cost of state-of-the-art diagnostic testing for HIV, hepatitis, and cervical cancer in low- and middle-income countries at a price of US$12 per patient sample.
- Expanding our integrated approach to maternal, newborn, and reproductive health to countries including Zambia, Uganda, and South Africa.
- A 58 percent reduction, on average, on the price of handheld pulse oximeters- simple, life-saving tools that can help to quickly diagnose severe pneumonia.
