Keep a Child Alive (KCA) was founded in 2003 by Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys and AIDS activist Leigh Blake as an emergency push to get life-saving HIV medications to African children and families, who otherwise would not have had access to treatment.

KCA's work has since grown to include the critical components necessary for successful, life-long HIV treatment: comprehensive, holistic care that supports the complete health of children and their families, ensuring their physical, mental and social well-being.

KCA provides financial and programmatic support to 7 innovative, grass-roots programs in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India, serving over 100,000 people annually. With the help of its supporters, KCA continues to use its voice to raise awareness, mobilize people to take action, and rally resources in the global response to HIV.
