Meeting Our Commitment
15TH ANNIVERSARY HIGHLIGHTS
2014 marked the 15th anniversary of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation's SECURE THE FUTURE initiative, a groundbreaking commitment to develop, deploy and evaluate cost-effective, sustainable and replicable models for providing care and support to people living with HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
When SECURE THE FUTURE launched in 1999, it was the first and largest private commitment to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. The initiative initially focused on five countries and, over the years, its reach has extended into 22 African nations. Since 1999, SECURE THE FUTURE has committed more than
$180 million to more than 250 projects.
SECURE THE FUTURE has had many landmark achievements and has touched – and improved – the lives of millions of women and children living with HIV/AIDS. The program serves as a model of excellence in leveraging community, national and global support to bring HIV care, services and treatment to the world's neediest populations. It has also developed innovative approaches and models that have impacted the prevention and management of HIV and related illnesses globally.
