Alicia Keys

Since 2002, Grammy Award-winning singer Alicia Keys has made HIV/AIDS in Africa a top priority by creating the organization Keep a Child Alive, which provides lifesaving AIDS medications for Africans living with HIV. Recently, Keys and the Kaiser Family Foundation created Empowerment, a new program for women in the U.S. living with HIV.
