mothers2mothers believes in the power of mothers to end paediatric AIDS.
mothers2mothers (m2m) trains, employs, and empowers Mentor Mothers, who are mothers living with HIV, to work alongside doctors and nurses in understaffed health centres as members of the healthcare team. In one-on-one and group sessions, Mentor Mothers provide essential health education and psychosocial support to other HIV-positive mothers on how they can protect their babies from HIV infection, and keep themselves and their families healthy. Mentor Mothers’ ties to the community and first-hand knowledge of HIV makes them highly effective peer mentors.
We believe in the power of women to eliminate paediatric AIDS and create health and hope for themselves and their babies, families, and communities.
Our mission is to impact the health of mothers by putting them at the heart of improving reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health. Our Mentor Mother Model empowers mothers living with HIV, through education and employment, as role models to help other women access essential services and medical care.
