The Clinton Foundation runs nine programs and two affiliated programs as nonprofit organizations. Among the more notable ones:
– Clinton Health Access Initiative. Established in 2002, the flagship program remains the foundation’s largest initiative, accounting for 57 percent of total spending in 2014. Working with partner organizations such as the multinational UNITAID, it negotiates lower HIV/AIDS and malaria drug prices and trains health workers in developing countries.
– Clinton Global Initiative. Described as a “billionaire-studded” matchmaking event, CGI links rich donors with social entrepreneurs through an annual summit in New York and other meetings throughout the year. Unlike other movers-and-shakers conferences such as the World Economic Forum, “a requirement of attending CGI was to launch a program, partner with other organizations to take on one of these challenges – and the result has been spectacular,” said Craig Minassian, the foundation’s chief communications officer. To date, CGI members have made more than 3,400 “commitments to action,” ranging from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation giving $168 million to a malaria vaccine initiative to the Standard Chartered banking group funding 35 eye care projects in 25 countries.
– Clinton Climate Initiative. Formed in 2006, CCI runs programs on energy efficiency and forestry with the aim of combating climate change and helping communities adapt to its effects. These include a program to reduce deforestation and forestry degradation in Indonesia, Kenya, Guyana, Tanzania and Cambodia.
– Clinton Presidential Center. The center is home to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum and the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas in Clinton’s hometown of Little Rock.
