About Siloam


 

Founded in August 1995 Siloam offers wellness services for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Siloam’s integrated approach to HIV care acts as a complement to traditional medicine. Our programs

and services focus on the whole person–body, mind and spirit. Our full range of services address the

mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing of persons living with and or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Some of these services are particularly geared to those who are HIV positive and other programs are

open to family and friends as well of those who provide services to the HIV/AIDS community.

Our Mission: to enrich the well-being of people impacted by HIV/AIDS by providing a broad range of integrative mind / body / spirit services that empower our clients to develop skills and personal strengths leading to more meaningful lives.

Our Vision: A vibrant safe and empowered HIV/AIDS community, free from Stigma
