World Mission Foundation

Crusaders against HIV/AIDS

World Mission Foundation is a Community Based Organization/NGO which was established eleven years ago to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The organization provides prevention, education, outreach and support services to African Immigrants and African Americans both in the US and Sub-Saharan Africa. World Mission was incorporated in Nigeria in 2004 named World Mission AIDS Initiative Nigeria. World Mission Foundation has numerous networks with other NGOs, CBOs and has a Special Conservative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

World Mission Foundation has been doing great work in the last eleven years in New York City and Nigeria. Our services to African immigrants, African Americans and Caribbean provide the much needed education, information, prevention, testing and screening for meeting the challenges of HIV/AIDS and facing the stigmatization that is often associated with the virus. We are expanding the scope of our services in New York City comprehensively and to include immigrant faith-based organizations, families, organizations of African immigrants, African Americans, and of course, the underprivileged in the city. I believe our efforts will contribute immensely in mitigating the impact of the growing HIV infections, AIDS complications and related deaths like hepatitis and infant mortality. Our long standing experiences and core competencies when fully harnessed will further alleviate the immediate and remote factors fuelling the epidemic such as low levels of education, unemployment, female commercial sex work, drug use and deteriorating moral standards.

Over the past eight years, World Mission Foundation has provided innovative community based programs across New York City that have successfully helped change the lives of many African Immigrants, African Americans, Caribbean and other relevant communities infected or affected with the virus. I am confident World Mission Foundation/World Mission AIDS Initiative Nigeria will help enhance the awareness of HIV/AIDS in these identified areas.

World Mission Foundation is desirous of comprehensively expanding the level of its services in Sub-Saharan Africa to include secondary schools, colleges, families and communities in the Nigeria States. Available statistics have shown that there is a high prevalence of HIV infection and death in these areas due to lack of education and high rate of unemployment with its attendant moral degeneration. World Mission Foundation aims to provide complete quality care and comprehensive, independent, self-sustaining rehabilitation programs for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Nigeria and the United Stated. These aims will be accomplished as follows:
