The Global Access Initiative (GAI) — Innovation With a Humanitarian Purpose — Transforms HIV and Cervical Cancer Screening for Many Countries
The GAI is a partnership with the Clinton Health Access Initiative and MedAccess. It provides access to testing for HIV, HCV, HBV, HPV and COVID-19 using our Panther® system. This testing is delivered with a cost-effective pricing structure and no requirement for capital expenditure.
The GAI brings a holistic model of pricing, training and service to a region in dire need of innovative solutions. Thanks to our ability to adapt and meet market needs, more people can be helped through advanced diagnostics screening and co-testing for cervical cancer, greatly improving the quality of life for those throughout Africa.
The Global Access Initiative began with two countries and has grown to a dozen participants. To date, it has saved $27 million in direct procurement for governments, donors and public entities.
