The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and

reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of

governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can

succeed without our assistance.

Since 2007, CHAI continues to work with the Nigerian Government to improve the health outcomes of the

population. CHAI commenced partnership with the Rivers State Ministry of Health and agencies in 2010; starting

with the implementation of a paediatric HIV programme that improved access to quality diagnostics and treatments

for children. Overtime the partnership has expanded to other programmes including Severe Malaria, Essential

Medicines for children (the Zinc/ORS programme), Family Planning and Vaccines. CHAI’s commitment to

improved health outcomes of the Rivers state citizens in collaboration with the state currently focuses on:

− A Sexual Reproductive Maternal and Newborn Health (SRMNH) programme to increase access to and

uptake of effective contraceptive methods and, high quality post-abortion care, to further reduce unintended

pregnancies, maternal and neonatal deaths and stillbirths in 11 LGAs

− A Post-pregnancy Care (PoPCare) programme to increase access to and uptake of post-pregnancy modern

contraception in 4 additional LGAs

− A Congenital Syphilis programme that seeks to introduce, implement and scale-up dual test kit use in the

ANC population to improve HIV/syphilis diagnosis and treatment as well as reduce the overall burden of

congenital syphilis

− A Cervical Cancer programme to increase uptake of screening and accelerate access to and scale up of the

use of optimal tools for secondary prevention of cervical cancer

− A Lab Access programme to strengthen in-country access to quality and affordable diagnostic and

monitoring technologies aimed to improve quality of life for patients across disease programs to contribute to

the achievement of the 95-95-95 global UNAIDS targets.

CHAI’s programme activities are implemented across all sectors and levels of health care, in collaboration with the

State Ministry of Health, Rivers State Hospital Management Board, and the Rivers State Primary Health Care

Management Board.
