Every year, 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 become community health volunteers, providing 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  reaches over 100,000 people every year living with and affected by HIV, and expanding to address other health conditions.*

Elizabeth Ward treats over 500 children a year from under-privileged families who require specialist care, at no cost to the families.

Elizabeth Ward is entirely supported by charitable donations from Mildmay UK.

Past work

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 UK works with our sister-NGOs overseas

These organisations are independent from the UK - they are locally registered with their own Boards of Trustees and constitutions.

Although they carry out their own fundraising and partnership work, they are still reliant on Mildmay UK's supporters to fund their work.

*Mildmay needs to raise funds for these and other projects
