ONE is a global campaign and advocacy organization co-founded by Bono and backed by nearly seven million people from around the world and every walk of life that are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. We hold world leaders to account for the promises made to the poorest, and we press them to support better policies and more effective aid and trade reform. We also work with leaders in Africa to support greater democracy, accountability and transparency so these resources can be effectively deployed. ONE has offices in Abuja, Berlin, Brussels, Johannesburg, London, New York City, Ottawa, Paris, Rotterdam and Washington DC.

(RED), a division of the ONE, transforms the collective power of consumers into a financial force to help others in need. (RED) works with the world’s most iconic brands – including Apple, Coca-Cola, Belvedere, Bank of America, and Starbucks – to drive contributions to the Global Fund. To date, (RED) has contributed more than $350 million to the Global Fund and over 70 million people have been reached with testing, counseling, treatment, and other services due to HIV/AIDS programs that (RED) supports.
