Over four years ago, Congress approved large amounts in funding to help the global disease outbreak branch around the time of the Ebola epidemic. According to the Washington Post, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now decreasing their aid to 39 countries and decreasing disease prevention as a whole by 80 percent.

The film features actors Teyonah Parris and Nic Few. “90 Days” is part of a greater initiative to help black women utilize  biomedical HIV prevention strategies through a collaborative campaign called “Black Women and PrEP.” PrEP, or Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, is a medicine, which if taken daily, can prevent HIV infection. The film was supported by the Black AIDS Institute, Walgreens, and CDC's Act Against AIDS prevention program.
