Largest part of Clinton family charity announces changes if Clinton is elected

If Hillary Clinton wins the White House, the Clinton Health Access Initiative — which is the largest initiative under the Clinton Foundation — will no longer have Bill and Chelsea Clinton on the board.

The announcement is one of a list of changes announced Wednesday that will be put in place to avoid conflicts of interest if the Democratic nominee is elected president.

“If Secretary Clinton is elected President, the changes outlined here will be implemented and CHAI would become an organization completely independent of the Clinton Foundation,” according to a statement released by the organization, which is focused on HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

All five members of the CHAI Board that were appointed by the Clinton Foundation — including the former president and former first daughter — will resign and be replaced by the end of 2016. The bylaws will also be amended to take away the Clinton Foundation’s ability to appoint future members to the board.

There will be a succession plan for CHAI CEO Ira Magaziner and all other senior management who were put in place by the Clinton Foundation.

The initiative will also stop using “Clinton” in its name, though it will keep the acronym “CHAI.”
