Manager, Diagnostics, Global Markets Team

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. For more information, please visit:
Based on the premise that business oriented strategies 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 and diagnostic 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.
Global Markets Team:
The Global Markets Team (GMT) works to address supply-side barriers to access and foster the development of a healthy marketplace. We play a leading role in managing relationships with pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies to implement strategies that unlock the revenue potential of emerging markets while meeting public health needs. Together with internal and external stakeholders, we support the development of policies and agreements that expand and accelerate access to life-saving commodities while meeting commercial goals.
