DREAMS Project Participants

Mildmay is implementing the Bill & Melinda Gates/PEPFAR/NIKE-funded DREAMS Initiative (DREAMS = Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS Free, Mentored, and Safe) in 5 districts including: Mityana, Mubende, Gomba, Sembabule, and Bukomansimbi. The goal of DREAMS is to reduce the incidence of new HIV cases in girls and young women 15-24 by bringing together evidence–based approaches that address the structural drivers that increase girls’ and young women’s HIV risk, including poverty, gender inequality, sexual violence and lack of education.

Since its inception, DREAMS has reached over 36000 adolescent girls and young women with critical comprehensive HIV prevention to reduce their risk of HIV infection help them to know their HIV status, and ultimately prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.
