Mission: KCA was founded in 2003 by AIDS activist Leigh Blake and 15-time Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys, as an emergency push to get life-saving HIV medication to children needlessly dying of AIDS in Africa. Today, we continue to work on the front lines in the fight against AIDS, providing the critical components necessary to support successful, life-long HIV treatment: comprehensive clinical care, nutritious food and psychosocial support, all delivered with compassion, dignity and respect. We also tackle the social and economic factors that fuel this epidemic and get in the way of prevention and treatment, such as poverty, lack of education, stigma, discrimination and isolation.
