Chevron became the first Global Fund Corporate Champion in 2008 with an investment of $30 million over three years. In 2010, the company extended its support through a three-year, $25 million commitment to the U.S. Fund for the Global Fund to support programs dedicated to fighting HIV and AIDS and reducing mother-to-child transmission.

During the International AIDS Conference in Washington, Chevron announced its partnership with Pact, mothers2mothers, the Business Leadership Council (BLC) and the Global Fund, to amplify efforts to eliminating mother to child transmission of HIV in Nigeria, Angola and South Africa. At the Exhibition Hall, Chevron also portrayed its work in the fight against AIDS and received thousands of visitors throughout the week.

“The Private Sector is an extremely important partner in the fight against the diseases, both in program implementation and as a supportive donor,” said Gabriel Jaramillo, general manager of the Global Fund. “Chevron became the first Corporate Champion in 2008 and recommitted additional resources in 2010. We are hugely encouraged by its continued support for the Global Fund and we hope that other private sector companies will follow Chevron’s example.”
