Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa (or DATA) was a multinational non-government organization founded in January 2002 in London by U2's Bono along with Bobby Shriver and activists from the Jubilee 2000 Drop the Debt campaign.

DATA was created for the purposes of obtaining equality and justice for Africa through debt relief; adjusting trade rules which burden Africa; eliminating the African AIDS epidemic; strengthening democracy; furthering accountability by the wealthiest nations and African leaders; and transparency towards the people. In 2007, DATA and Bono were jointly awarded the National Constitution Center's 2007 Liberty Medal for their groundbreaking efforts to address the AIDS crisis and extreme poverty in Africa.

Start-up funds came from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, financier George Soros, and technology entrepreneur Edward W. Scott.[1]

In 2007, DATA and the ONE Campaign decided to join forces, and in January 2008, they formally merged under the name ONE.[2]

DATA received support from the Christian rock/Alternative rock bands Switchfoot and Third Day.
