CBS Corporation and Viacom, two of the largest media companies in the world, and the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, teamed up to carry out an unprecedented public education campaign on HIV/AIDS, beginning in 2003. Drawing on the Kaiser Family Foundation’s expertise, and the breadth and depth of CBS Corporation and Viacom’s creative and distribution assets, the multi-year initiative used television, radio, outdoor, online and print media to provide information about HIV prevention and testing.

The KNOW HIV/AIDS initiative ran public service messages across the full range of CBS Corporation’s and Viacom’s TV, radio, and outdoor properties. The initiative also encompassed AIDS-related themes woven into CBS Corporation- and Viacom-produced entertainment series, a free educational guide, and other resources. In the United States, the campaign was aimed at the public-at-large as well as those groups that are most at-risk for the disease, including youth, people of color, women, and men who have sex with men.
