KCA is committed to fighting HIV & AIDS on the front lines, addressing the critical components necessary to support successful, life-long HIV treatment. This includes comprehensive clinical care, nutritious food and psychosocial support that is delivered with compassion, dignity and respect.

Currently, there are 36.9 million people are living with HIV today, with 2 million new infections in 2014 alone. And 41% of those people are unable to access the treatment they need. KCA provides financial and programmatic support to 9 grassroots programs in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa and India, serving 150,000 people annually. KCA utilizes a community-based approach, who are able to reach the places hardest hit by the epidemic. Our partners know what their communities need and can nimbly respond to the complex and changing situation on the ground. They not only provide comprehensive clinical care - but also tackle head-on the social inequities that fuel this epidemic, such as poverty, discrimination, isolation, and violence against children and women.

KCA develops annual work plans both internally and with our partners to create annual programmatic, financial and strategic goals for the coming year. These individualized work plans provide the opportunity for both partners and departments to create goals that are reflective of their respective work in conjunction with the mission and goals of the organization as a whole.

KCA carefully tracks our impact through a variety of measures. This includes tracking quarterly goals within each work plan that are aimed at achieving the overall priorities for both the teams and partners. Our partners are also responsible for submitting quarterly data to enable metrics to be tracked.

Furthermore, the Board of Directors receives financial updates and the work plans in order to ensure the organization is effectively making progress toward these goals.

KCA is constantly striving to extend its reach. There are 15 million people receiving HIV medication, which is saving their lives. However, 41% of people living with HIV are unable to access the treatment they need. HIV is intrinsically linked to issues of poverty, poor health and diet, gender inequality, and lack of education. Stigma and discrimination also present a significant barrier to people accessing healthcare services. The medicines people need to live healthy, productive and fulfilling lives exist, we just need the resources to do so. KCA will continue to promote awareness, develop relationships and grow our programs to impact this disease and see an end to AIDS.
