Areas of Work

The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with community-based organizations working on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. We support women, children orphaned by AIDS and the indomitable grandmothers who have stepped in to care for them, and associations of people living with HIV and AIDS, who are bravely declaring their status and working to address stigma, educate their communities and press for change.

We strive to be responsive in our support, and to the constantly-evolving needs and priorities on the ground. Our current areas of focus include:

We work at the community level in 15 sub-Saharan African countries: Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
