Since 2002, the Clinton Health Access Initiative has been assisting low- and middle-income countries in implementing large-scale, integrated HIV care, treatment, and prevention programs.
Our ultimate objectives are to make high-quality HIV/AIDS and malaria care and treatment available to all who need it, and to partner with governments and other stakeholders to strengthen healthcare systems and develop sustainable strategies to overcome obstacles to scale-up. To date, more than 70 countries have access to lower priced drugs as a result of CHAI’s work with pharmaceutical companies. 3.9 million people – representing nearly 70% of people being treated for HIV/AIDS globally – have benefited from these reduced-price medicines. Please also see the brochure attached.
We take a business-oriented approach to solve some the world’s largest healthcare concerns and often recruit individuals with extensive experience in both the private sector and public-health related work.
Students hoping to leverage their academic background and grow themselves may be interested in our work.

A Programme Director and members of Clinton Health Access Initiative’s Global and National Recruitment Teams will be delivering a presentation on their work in the global health space. CHAI applies a unique business approach while working closely with governments in over 33 countries to sustainably strengthen public and private health systems.
This will be followed by the exclusive opportunity of one-on-one networking with members of CHAI who are actively looking to recruit the best talent from UWC.
CHAI believes that every child, regardless of their place of birth or their family’s financial circumstances, deserves to have the opportunity to fulfill his or her potential free from premature death or debilitating disease. Good-quality national health systems that can accomplish these goals are essential to lift people from poverty.
