Life-saving medicines delivered, around the world
According to the World Health Organization, 770,000 people died from HIV-related causes in 2018, with the largest percentage of victims in Africa. While HIV patients can live long lives today, only 62 percent of HIV-affected adults receive anti-retroviral drugs, which help to fight infection and lower chances of disease transmission.
In 2017, international development contractor Chemonics and IBM came together to oversee one of USAID’s largest projects in history worth nearly USD 10 billion. Their mission was to deliver health supplies for HIV/AIDS, malaria and reproductive health to more than 60 countries around the world.
