Secure the Future
In 1999, Bristol-Myers Squibb and its Foundation launched SECURE THE FUTURE, then a $100 million commitment to help alleviate the HIV/AIDS crisis among women and children in sub-Saharan Africa. Over the years, the public-private initiative--the first and largest corporate commitment of its kind to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa--has grown in size and scope to encompass nearly 200 grants. These provide medical care and research, infrastructure development and community outreach, and education in nine hard-hit countries in southern and West Africa. The company has committed nearly $150 million in Africa.

Through SECURE THE FUTURE, Ministries of Health, medical institutions, health care professionals, non-governmental, community-based and faith-based organizations have worked together to build sustainable models to address medical, educational and community outreach needs in southern and West Africa. In addition to the Children's Clinical Centers of Excellence, other programs developed and operated through grants include a Community-Based Treatment Support Program for sustainable care, with sites in South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia and Mali; and the BMS Foundation NGO Training Institute focusing on capacity-building in five southern African nations.

Bristol-Myers Squibb recently announced with Baylor College of Medicine, Houston a groundbreaking multi-part program to provide medical care for African children with HIV/AIDS. A pediatric AIDS corps will be created to send up to 250 doctors to Africa to treat approximately 80,000 children over the next five years and to train local health care professionals. In addition four new children's clinical centers of excellence will be built in a $40 million program. The pediatric AIDS corps and children's clinical centers are the latest additions to Bristol-Myers Squibb's SECURE THE FUTURE program, which has previously awarded nearly 200 grants totaling $120 million in sub-Saharan Africa, and Baylor College of Medicine's International Pediatric AIDS Initiative, which has built and operates several of the world's largest pediatric HIV/AIDS treatment centers in developing countries in Africa and Eastern Europe. Bristol-Myers Squibb's new commitment is approximately $30 million and Baylor's is $10 million.

In addition to its commitment in Africa through Secure the Future, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation funds programs through its Global HIV/AIDS Initiative in Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, Russia, the Ukraine and France.
