December 1 is World AIDS Day. For many years, Apple has been using its own devices to warn of severe illness and related health, economic, and social problems.
Although the coronavirus epidemic has long been at the forefront of medical news, AIDS, in addition to promising advances in its cure, is still one of the most severe health problems in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared December 1 World AIDS Day 23 years ago. Following this initiative, many are using their means to raise awareness of the importance of joint action.
Apple, for example, has colored the big apple logo red in several Apple Stores and continues to sell exclusive (RED) versions of its products. These are red versions of popular Apple devices, from iPhones to Apple intelligent straps.
In addition, until December 6, the Global Fund will donate $1 (up to $ 1 million in total) to the International Organization for each purchase on Apple.com, the Apple Store app, and the U.S. Apple Stores. Half of the revenue will be used to fight Covid-19 by December 31, 2022, to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus epidemic on the fight against AIDS.
Apple has raised nearly $270 million to fight global epidemics such as AIDS and Covid-19 in a 15-year partnership with RED.
