Bristol-Myers Squibb and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation launched Secure the Future to help address the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa
Description/achievement of initiative

In 1999 Bristol-Myers Squibb and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation launched Secure the Future (STF), the first and largest private commitment to help address the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. STF's initial commitment of US $100 million in the five southern most African countries has now exceeded US $165 million and is present in over 20 African countries. A major element of STF was the development of the first network of Children's Clinical Centers of Excellence on the continent in partnership with the Baylor College of Medicine and country governments. BMS has also invested in the human resource needs of these centers by establishing the first Pediatric AIDS Corps to help treat but also train local health care professionals. The sites now see over 97,000 children and parents through the centers and network of satellite clinics. Another component of Secure the Future is the establishment of a South to South, Technical Assistance Program (TAP) on community based care. BMS Foundation's commitment includes establishing a new clinical center of excellence in Kisumu, Kenya; incorporating breast and cervical cancer training into our Technical Assistance model in South Africa and Lesotho (a five year, US $2 million commitment) and an increase of TAPs efforts on PMTCT and OVC care and support in Swaziland and Democratic Republic of the Congo.
