Apple has announced that it is expanding its partnership with (RED) to help fight HIV/AIDS and also COVID 19.
The company revealed that its Product Red devices have raised more than $250 million over the last 14 years to fund HIV/AIDS programs.
Apple has said that it will give 100 percent of eligible proceeds from (PRODUCT)RED purchases to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response.
This year, communities around the world are grappling with HIV/AIDS as they also work to respond and protect against COVID-19, particularly for vulnerable populations. COVID-19 has created challenges in accessing care, diagnostics, and supplies, often disrupting crucial HIV/AIDS programs. To alleviate these challenges and ensure continuity in life-saving HIV/AIDS services, Apple’s contributions were redirected to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response at the onset of the pandemic earlier this year. Thanks in part to support from Apple and Apple customers, the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response has been able to alleviate the impact of COVID-19 on the communities most affected by HIV/AIDS and provide critical support in health systems threatened by the COVID-19 outbreak.
