Bristol-Myers Squibb: HIV/AIDS in Africa
 
HIV/AIDS in Africa

SECURE THE FUTURE®, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s flagship philanthropic program that provides care and support for communities affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa, has funded more than $150 million in programs in 21 African countries over 11 years, with special emphasis on community treatment support programs, care for children and building infrastructure.

In 2008, SECURE THE FUTURE® entered a new phase as a technical assistance and skills transfer program, which leverages the successes, experiences and leanings from SECURE THE FUTURE® and empowers communities to harness resources and capacity to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of multi-sectoral, community-based HIV/AIDS programs. Priority areas include:

  • Continue expanding SECURE THE FUTURE® Technical Assistance and Skills Transfer into Africa
  • Improving the diagnosis, support, education and treatment for people co-infected with HIV and tuberculosis
  • Pharmacist-based HIV/AIDS services
Featured partnerships: Addressing Cancer, Mental Health Among HIV Patients

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is applying the successful approach of its SECURE THE FUTURE® program, which mobilizes entire communities in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa, to programs for women with cervical and breast cancers living with HIV and patients with mental illness who are living with HIV.

The Foundation recently awarded grants totaling $214,000 to two South Africa organizations – Grandmothers Against Poverty and AIDS (GAPA) and Mpilonhle Sanctuary Project – to support these efforts. Read more >>
