Overview

Since 2004, CHAI has worked with the Indian government to expand access to treatment and care for patients across critical health needs including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis, women and children’s health, vaccines, and more recently cancer. Together, we are working to improve the delivery of high-quality health services at the federal and state levels, addressing issues with supply and demand and reducing the costs of essential medication and health products. We are helping the government to improve its digital health information systems to improve communications and enhance efficiency, including monitoring of HIV and the implementation of the largest-ever health insurance program, Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) that seeks to accelerate India’s progress towards achievement of universal health coverage (UHC).

CHAI is supporting critical interventions to improve the health of women and children including combatting chronic malnutrition and deaths from pneumonia and diarrhea—the two largest killers of children under five—and increasing access to lifesaving vaccines. We are supporting the governments of Madhya Pradesh and Telangana to improve screening and treatment of cancer, and working in Punjab to develop data systems and tools to effectively manage and treat hepatitis patients. Nationally, we are working with the government to rollout the National Viral Hepatitis Control Program which aims to treat 300,000 patients with hepatitis C by 2022. CHAI is also supporting the national TB program in strengthening engagement with the private sector by setting up effective and sustainable systems to provide quality treatment to TB patients seeking care in the private sector nationally, along with the introduction of new and better medications.

Kenya introduces ambitious efforts to tackle pneumonia

Pneumonia is a common respiratory illness in children from North America to Africa. Yet, on this World Pneumonia Day, we also recognize that it remains the single biggest killer of children under five in the world, causing more deaths each year than AIDS, malaria, and the measles combined.
