Our overseas work
Mildmay works with over 100,000 of the most vulnerable and hard to reach people living with and affected by HIV and other related health issues
This includes children and their families, vulnerable children and orphans and other vulnerable groups
Mildmay trains many ordinary people to provide basic healthcare and social support for people living with HIV in their communities. This enables those in the remotest regions to receive the care they need. Our programme of education includes the training of community healthcare workers, senior government officials, prison wardens and drug rehabilitation teams.
Mildmay Kenya works to empower communities to deliver HIV health care services through support, education and training. We work to reach key affected and at-risk groups including young women, children, adolescents, MSM, and sex workers.
Mildmay Uganda was Mildmay’s first international programme, opening in Kampala in 1998.
Today Mildmay Uganda is an independent NGO, or non-governmental organisation (charity), with its own board.
Mildmay UK are proud to support Mildmay Uganda whose work now reaches over 103,000 people living with and affected by HIV, expanding to address other health conditions.*
Boresha – Prisoners, Children and Healthcare Workers living with HIV
From 2010-13, Mildmay Kenya and Tanzania carried out ‘Boresha’, a bold, multi-country project which targeted key vulnerable populations infected and affected by HIV in Kenya and Tanzania. It was part funded by the European Union.
The groups we worked with were prisoners, HIV positive healthcare workers and children...*
*Mildmay has a number of sister NGOs working overseas. The organisations are independent from the UK - they are locally registered with their own boards of trustees and constitutions. These organisations carry out their own fundraising and partnership work; but are still funded through the UK office for particular work.
As our understanding of HIV has evolved, and as medication and survival rates have improved, Mildmay continues to adapt and respond and meet new, often complex and rapidly changing need. Our aim is to continue to work to develop new projects, and well as sustain our current successes.
