The first thing you need to do is have a diluted concentration of bleach in a bottle. You want dilute it down to one part bleach to 10 parts water. Then, you want to spray it on your walls and allow it to sit and soak in for about 10 minutes. Then, take a rag and scrub the mildew off.  If you are dealing with severe mildew that occupies more than 10 ft.² of your bathroom, you will probably want to wear a breathing mask while you work.  If you have more than 25 to 50 ft.² of mold or mildew in your home, you should consider consulting with a professional company to come in and take care of the mold problem for you. It can be very difficult (and even dangerous) for you to take care of the problem on your own.  Also make sure that you have the door to the bathroom open, and the fan on in order to have proper ventilation.

The reason why it grew there in the first place was because when the steam built up in the bathroom, it condensed on the ceilings and on the walls.  This allowed the mildew to grow there very quickly.
