Clinton Health Access Initiative (New Delhi, DL, India) 2 days ago

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: https://www.clintonhealthaccess.org


CHAI has been working in India since 2004 in partnership with, and under the guidance of, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) both at the central and state levels on an array of high priority initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes. Currently, CHAI works across projects to expand access to quality care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis-C, tuberculosis, cancer, health financing and immunization. Additionally, CHAI is supporting the government of Madhya Pradesh (MP) on large-scale programs to arrest childhood and maternal mortality due to malnutrition, anemia, diarrhea and pneumonia, and helping increase access to quality Family Planning services.

Background:

Vector Borne Diseases (VBDs) represent a substantial burden in many low and lower middle-income countries, including India that accounts for a significant proportion of the global burden of Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) and Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL). VL is endemic in about 54 districts in Bihar, Jharkhand, UP and WB with an estimated 130-165 million population at risk whilst LF is more widespread with cases reported across ~20 states/Union Territories and an estimated 550-600 million people at risk. Under the aegis of the National Vector Borne Disease Control Program, significant progress has been made towards elimination by 2025 and this ambitious vision is backed by strong political and robust programmatic strategy. Mass Drug Administration (MDA) for addressing LF has been completed and transmission interruption accomplished in 94 of the 256 endemic districts; however, transmission continues in 137 districts despite ~5-6 rounds of MDA underscoring the challenge of the task ahead.

CHAI is privileged to support NVBDCP’s bold vision of accelerated elimination of VL and LF by 2025. To that end, CHAI plans to staff a Technical Support Unit (TSU), an embedded team to work under the guidance of NVBDCP to achieve its vision through:

  • Strengthened technical and managerial support to NVBDCP management
  • Enhanced disease intelligence and analytics for improved programmatic decisions-making
  • Adoption of dynamic innovations across disease portfolios, and, effective and sustained investments in the space of NTDs/VBDs
  • Support NVBDCP program in steering partnerships and multi-sector response

The programme is enriched with a variety of data points that include the various centralized Information Communication Technologies (ICT) that exist such as the Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme (IDSP), Kalaazar Management Information System (KAMIS), Lymphatic Filariasis Dashboard Software, WHO district health Information System, Health Management Information System, Malaria Information System to name few that are operational within the VBD ecosystem between Government and stakeholders. However, as is the case in such situations that data does not come together, and the systems do not necessarily corelate as required for informed decision making.
