What we do
Mildmay Mission Hospital
Mildmay is a charitable hospital based in East London. Our hospital provides structured pathways of rehabilitation, treatment, services, and care for people with complex and severe HIV-related health conditions, including HIV-associated brain impairment (also known as HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorder, or HAND).
In 2020, Mildmay began the first of our ground-breaking new services for people who are homeless or rough-sleeping and recuperating from illness or injury, providing step-down, rehabilitative healthcare. We also became London's primary COVID-Care Centre for this cohort and for step-down HIV patients.
2022 saw the launch of our REBUILD Pathway, which provides post-detox, stabilisation-based intermediate residential rehabilitation care to patients who are homeless.
Mildmay trains many ordinary people who volunteer 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.
Since the 1990s, Mildmay International has had a significant impact in supporting people with HIV. We have worked on numerous projects that have in time, been handed over to local NGOs (see Past Work). Today, in East Africa, 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.
