The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation was established in 2001 as an African community foundation in response to the growth and impact of the HIV pandemic. In 2002, The Foundation and Africa-based Coca-Cola bottlers established the most extensive employee healthcare program for HIV/AIDS and related conditions in Africa.
Once The Coca-Cola System successfully funded the workplace HIV/AIDS programs, The Foundation redirected its HIV efforts to solely fund prevention and awareness services for communities.
As part of its mission is to strengthen and empower African communities, The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation also formed partnerships with local grassroots and international non-governmental organizations to deliver HIV/AIDS education and prevention.
The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation has been working with WaterAid since April 2013 to make safe drinking water a reality for people living in one of the poorest suburbs of Burkina Faso’s capital city, Ouagadougou, and in two rural communities in southern Ethiopia.
