Clinton Health Access Initiative

Manager, Access to Diagnostics

CHAI’s Access Program works to improve the availability and affordability of high-quality diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries, with a focus on products used for the diagnosis and treatment of HIV and TB. This includes work with manufacturers to secure reduced pricing, as well as helping countries prepare for the efficient implementation and scale up of better testing products and services. In particular, given that only 50 percent of adults and children living with HIV know they are infected, CHAI is working to address this gap by improving the targeting of HIV testing and supporting the use of better quality rapid diagnostic tests.
