One Step Beyond heralds a firm but well-considered step forward for Mildmay as an international organisation

Every organisation needs a sense of direction to focus its activities, expenditure, efforts, and use of skills and experience.

One Step Beyond, Mildmay’s strategic plan for the next three years, provides clear guiding principles, a context within which Mildmay International can move forward confidently into the future, grow as an organisation, make the most of opportunities, and focus on what we do best.

It is not a restrictive document which will hinder development or limit our responses, nor does it stop us from stepping outside our stated goals, but rather it is a positive and flexible blueprint for a stronger, more cohesive and more effective Mildmay.

One Step Beyond recognises that Mildmay will build on our established reputation as a world leader in clinical work and training in HIV, and avoid investment of resources and energy in areas not suited to our experience and expertise.

The creation of One Step Beyond has been a collaborative and consultative process involving all our country teams

One Step Beyond heralds a firm but well-considered step forward for Mildmay as an international organisation, taken with confidence and care and with awareness of the shifting donor landscape and the tight financial climate in which we find ourselves.

One Step Beyond will be in terms of:

  • The numbers we serve
  • The areas or countries we work in
  • The services we develop
  • Our range of donors
  • Better back office functions
  • And cooperating with more partner agencies

This is an international document, and as such is necessarily broad. Each Mildmay country team and international department will work with this document, add detail specific to their own work and develop their own strategic plan, using One Step Beyond as the source map for stepping out. It is also from this document that we will develop a business plan for the organisation.

We aim to build on our strengths, build on our core competencies and, in time, move away from areas not best suited to Mildmay’s experience and expertise.

The creation of One Step Beyond has been a collaborative and consultative process involving all our country teams, senior international staff, our board of trustees and a number of key external stakeholders and supporters. It has given us the opportunity for conversation, reflection, and interaction. We have made our plans as a Christian organisation, but we acknowledge it is God who ultimately determines our steps.

So we step forward in faith and in hope, with determination and committed to enabling people living with HIV and AIDS to have life in all its fullness.
