Apple announced today that its contributions to (RED) have reached $200 million, making it the largest corporate donor.
Since its founding by Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has raised more than $600 million to support the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, $200 million of which has come from its partnership with Apple, the organization’s largest corporate donor.
In a report highlighting work in Kenya, Apple notes that the Global Fund has helped to radically change access to HIV treatment, providing 17.5 million people with ARVs — now available from the moment they test positive. As a result, Kenya has seen a 52 percent drop in new HIV infections since 2000. As of last year, just 4.8 percent of all adults were HIV-positive.
