Give Now


Global Ministries works to address the burgeoning HIV crisis through the work of the Global Health Unit. We mobilize and appropriate funding to support projects around the world that prevent the spread of HIV, provide care with those living with HIV/AIDS and improve access to testing and treatment. Programs also help increase the capacity of communities to respond to the epidemic and combat stigma. Global Ministries works in partnership with the United Methodist Global AIDS fund.


The programs we fund specifically address:

  • Prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
  • Prevention of HIV in young people and high-risk populations.
  • Access to HIV counseling, testing, and treatment services.
  • Stigma reduction.
  • Psychosocial support to people living with HIV.

Health Systems Strengthening

Using the framework of the World Health Organization's six health system strengthening building blocks, Global Ministries works to improve the quality of health service and increase access to health care in low-resource settings through United Methodist health networks.

Imagine No Malaria

The Imagine No Malaria program aims to reduce the number of deaths and illnesses caused by malaria in African communities through comprehensive, community-based malaria programs and quality health services through United Methodist-affiliated health centers.

Health in the United States

In the United States, Global Ministries’ health programs promote and provide resources for the establishment of health ministries in local congregations, especially through a network of faith-community nurses and health advocates.
