Areas of Work

The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with community-based organizations working on the frontlines of the HIV & AIDS epidemic 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 & 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.
