About AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and why we produced this film:

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation ( AHF ) has grown from a small community hospice provider, caring for people dying of AIDS in Los Angeles to the largest global HIV/AIDS organization in the world, now providing care to over one million people in 42 countries. In 2017, AHF marked a momentous milestone – its 30-year anniversary.

Providing and treating human beings with the medicine they need to survive is at the core of our mission. For three decades, our organization has strived towards treating as many people as possible, advocating for lower medication costs. The cost of medicine cannot go down if pharmaceutical companies continue to set and achieve billion-dollar profit goals.
