Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI’s teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care. In 2011 the NDOH embarked upon an ambitious implementation of a standard monitoring system referred to as the 3-Tiered ART Monitoring Strategy, an activity CHAI has supported since inception.
CHAI will continue to support and strengthen the 3-Tiered Strategy and will embark on a series of innovative projects that aim to strengthen and institutionalize the 3-Tiered Monitoring System. The continued quality improvement of the ART program requires strong data systems. In the coming years, CHAI will continue this work by providing technical support and capacity building to the national and provincial Departments of Health (DoH) staff to improve the availability, quality and utilization of clinical and TB/HIV monitoring data. Proposed interventions will focus on improving data systems and data utilization in the provinces and districts. A key area of work will include capacity building to improve data driven decision-making through strengthened data use within the districts.
