Mildmay is a pioneering HIV charity delivering quality care and treatment, prevention work, rehabilitation, training and education, and health strengthening in the UK and East Africa. Our vision is a world in which everyone living with HIV can have life in all its fullness.
HIV is still one of the fastest growing serious health conditions in the UK with around 7,000 people newly diagnosed every year. Over 100,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK with around a quarter of that number being unaware of their condition.
Mildmay UK Hospital is a charitable HIV hospital located in East London, and has been providing pioneering care and services to people living with HIV since 1988. Mildmay’s specialised care and support includes highly skilled medical and nursing care, treatment and rehabilitation which combines a range of therapies. These include counselling, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language, music and art therapies and mental health services
Through the treatment and rehabilitation at Mildmay, over 80% of our clients return home to independent living and the quality of life improves for all. As our understanding of HIV has evolved, and medication and survival rates have improved, Mildmay continues to adapt and respond to meet new, often complex and rapidly changing need.
Mildmay also cares for thousands and thousands of people living with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa and Eastern Europe, supporting vulnerable and hard to reach people.
