People purchasing PRODUCT(RED) devices have now helped Apple raise nearly $270 million in contributions to help fight against HIV and AIDS in the 15 years since the charity partnered with the company on the 2006 (RED)-branded iPod nano.
Apple’s 14-year partnership with (RED) has raised almost $250 million to fund HIV/AIDS programs, but now the companies are expanding those efforts to help fight COVID-19.
December 1st is World AIDS Day, an annual event marked by the World Health Organization (WHO) dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic. Apple CEO Tim Cook noted the event with a post to Twitter acknowledging Apple's long-time partnership with the Product(RED) brand, now in its 13th year, to raise money to fight AIDS in Africa. Cook said that Apple's efforts have raised $220 million to date.
