To commemorate Julie Lewis surviving with HIV for 30 years, the 30/30 Project was established to fund 30 health facilities in areas that lack healthcare access and have high HIV incidence.

"It's very exciting that in our first year we've been able to fully fund 5 clinics in Kenya, Malawi, India, and Uganda," Ryan Lewis said at an IAS 2015 opening media briefing.
