Testimonials

Tarryn Bowers

Pediatric HIV Manager, Zimbabwe

“I first joined CHAI seeking an opportunity to channel my passion for improving access to sustainable, high quality healthcare for those most in need in my home country, Zimbabwe. CHAI has enabled me to develop a holistic understanding of the social, political, cultural, economic, and technical factors which shape the translation of policy frameworks into practice.”

Nitin Kothari

Senior Associate, India

“As part of the Immunization program team in India I work closely with State Health Mission to support data driven cold chain strengthening efforts. The entrepreneurial culture of CHAI motivated me to join the organization and over the last few years I have realized that CHAI’s values are the strength of the organization and are key to the substantial impact we can make through our program.”

Soleine Scotney

Associate Director - Global Vaccines, UK

“I joined CHAI because I wanted to use my skills for the benefit of the world’s most vulnerable populations. I like that CHAI works with both governments and the private sector to solve complex health access issues. I’ve worked with health ministries in Africa to accelerate uptake of life-saving vaccines, and with vaccine manufacturers to ensure that supply is available in sufficient quality and affordable prices.”

Tyra Fom

Associate - SRH Program, Nigeria

“Before I joined CHAI, I had interacted with CHAI staff on different professional and personal levels, and understood that the work culture was heavily invested in its staff and in a shared passion for saving lives. I saw a collection of people with unimaginable drive and an organization that was deliberate in creating an environment to foster the attainment of this shared passion.”
