OUR HISTORY.

We are still here.
We are here for the long term.

Co-founded in 2003 by Alicia Keys as an emergency response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, KCA has since established itself as a global leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS by providing children, young people and their families with comprehensive treatment, care and support to not only survive but thrive for a lifetime.

Today, we are broader in our outlook and more focused on our mission than ever before. To improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children, young people, adults and families around the world, with a focus on combating the physical, social and economic impacts of HIV/AIDs.

KCA has advocated for the
well-being of children and young
people since 2003.
