HENRY J KAISER FAMILY FOUNDATION

Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

aka KFF, Kaiser Family Foundation, KHN, Kaiser Health News, GTA, Greater Than AIDS   |   San Francisco, CA   |  www.kff.org

Mission

The Kaiser Family Foundation is a non-profit organization focusing on national health issues, as well as the U.S. role in global health policy. Unlike grant-making foundations, KFF develops and runs its own policy analysis, journalism and communications programs, sometimes in partnership with major news organizations. KFF serves as a non-partisan source of facts, analysis and journalism for policymakers, the media, the health policy community and the public. Our product is information, always provided free of charge — from the most sophisticated policy research, to basic facts and numbers, to in depth health policy news coverage provided by our news service, KHN, to information young people can use to improve their health or the general public can use to understand the health reform law.

Greater Than AIDS is a leading public information response focused on the U.S. domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic, in particular communities and people most affected.

Through targeted media messages and community outreach, Greater Than AIDS and its partners work to increase knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS and confront the stigma surrounding the disease, while promoting actions to stem its spread. Campaigns are tailored to the needs of specific communities with local tags and referrals.

More than 250 individuals living with and affected by HIV, as well as clinicians and other leaders, have shared their stories and experiences in Greater Than AIDS videos.

A detailed website provides information and local referrals to testing, PrEP and treatment services. With more than 600,000 followers and growing daily, Greater Than AIDS on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube is one of the largest social media communities on the domestic epidemic and a go-to destination for those looking to find – and offer – advice and support.

Launched in 2009, Greater Than AIDS works with a broad network of public and private sector partners – including Federal, state and local health agencies, national leadership groups, AIDS service and other community organizations, media and corporate allies, among others – to reach those in need with health information.

The Kaiser Family Foundation – a nonprofit leader in health policy and communications (not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente) – provides strategic direction and day-to-day oversight for Greater Than AIDS, as well as produces and places the media campaigns.

Greater Than AIDS references the latest epidemiological data, published research, and government sources, such as the CDC and NIH. Click here for national surveys and other research from Greater Than AIDS and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
