Infectious Diseases

Four infectious diseases cause the majority of deaths in low- and middle-income countries around the world. CHAI has built on the expertise of staff and the on-the-ground experience developed with our HIV work, to address each of these diseases, in partnership with governments, donors, and other key stakeholders.

Women, Newborn, and Children's Health

Women and children suffer the greatest burden from disease globally. CHAI has significantly increased access to recommended treatments for diarrhea and pneumonia, the largest killers of children under five; made critical vaccines that protect against childhood illnesses more affordable; is combating chronic malnutrition; and is dramatically and sustainably reducing maternal and newborn deaths and ensuring that women have access to the tools they need to safely plan their families to improve health outcomes and economic well-being.

Universal Health Coverage

CHAI’s founding mission and ultimate goal is to help countries create high-quality, sustainable health care systems that provide universal health coverage for all people. To achieve this, we work with governments to strengthen national financing systems, including establishing national health insurance plans, that can be sustained for years to come. We also help develop systems to educate healthcare professionals at all levels and to build sufficient physical infrastructure to deliver health services.

Non-Communicable Diseases

Each year, 15 million people die from non-communicable diseases between the ages of 30 and 69. Over 85 percent of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Cardiovascular diseases account for the most deaths, followed by cancers, respiratory diseases and diabetes. CHAI recently began work in this area with the launch of our cancer program in 2015. Cancer is a growing issue in sub-Saharan Africa, where incidence is projected to increase by 85 percent in the next 15 years. CHAI is working with the American Cancer Society to lower the cost of lifesaving chemotherapies, increase access to diagnosis and treatment, and help governments develop plans to comprehensively manage the disease.

Cross-Cutting Experts

CHAI works with governments and companies around the world to fundamentally change the economics of global health. Using a holistic, business-minded approach to secure lower prices for key commodities such as medication and diagnostics, improve laboratories, and connect decision-makers with the high-quality evidence they need to inform health policy, CHAI helps patients in low- and middle-income countries access the care and treatment they need. Our science and business experts work across the organization to support our program and country teams.
