Empowering communities to effectively respond to HIV and other priority health issues.
1.5 million people are living with HIV in Uganda, with only one in 10 getting the treatment they need. Young people are particularly vulnerable, 2.3% of young people are living with HIV.
Mildmay Uganda opened in Kampala in 1998 and was Mildmay’s first international programme. Since then we have grown to become the biggest HIV care treatment provider in central Uganda, now reaching over 90,000 people living with and affected by HIV. Mildmay Uganda offers total care with a family centered approach built on the knowledge experience and expertise we have accumulated over the years. As well as HIV prevention, holistic care and treatment, training, research and education, our work has expanded to include other HIV associated health conditons including family planning, TB and cervical cancer testing and treatment and STI treatment.
Mildmay Uganda has been a local non-govermental organisation since April 2012 with its own board.
