Founded by U2’s Bono in 2002, Debt, AIDS, Trade in Africa (or “DATA”) is a multinational non-government organization created in London with activists from the Jubilee 2000 Drop the Debt campaign.

It was created for the purpose of obtaining equality and justice for Africa through debt relief, adjusting trade rules which burden Africa, and eliminating the African AIDS epidemic.

In 2007, DATA and Bono were jointly awarded the National Constitution Center's 2007 Liberty Medal.

Start-up funds came from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, financier George Soros, and technology entrepreneur Edward W. Scott.

DATA is currently placing most of its resources into supporting the ONE Campaign.
U2's Bono created DATA to help fight poverty and AIDS in Africa.
