About AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and why we created 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.
