Ruby Shang will discuss her work with both the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Climate Initiative in Asia. 

The Clinton Health Access Initiative carries on and expands the projects previously conducted through the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative and works in association with governments and other NGO partners to expand access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS and malaria, and to strengthen integrated health systems around the world. 

The Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) aims to create and advance solutions to the core issues driving climate change. It takes a holistic approach, addressing the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and the people, policies, and practices that impact them. Working with governments and businesses around the world, CCI focuses on three strategic program areas: increasing energy efficiency in cities, catalyzing the large-scale supply of clean energy and working to stop deforestation.
