A portion of proceeds from ‘PRODUCT)RED’ devices and accessories will go directly to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the virus from mothers to their babies.
Since partnering with (RED) in 2006, Apple has donated more than $160 million to the Global Fund, serving as the organisation’s largest corporate donor. (RED) was founded in 2006 U2 frontman Bono and Bobby Striver.
(RED) CEO Deborah Dugan said: “The more than $160 million Apple has donated in the last 11 years today equates to more than 800 million days of lifesaving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies”.
