  • Community Mentor Mothers Supporting Option B+

    m2m’s Community Mentor Mothers (CMM), like Musana Aisha in Uganda, reach out to HIV-positive women who have been put on treatment through Option B+, a universal approach supported by the World Health Organization that recommends all HIV-positive pregnant and breastfeeding women be put on triple antiretroviral therapy (ART) for the rest of their lives. We asked Aisha how her clients react when they find out they are HIV positive and must take drugs for life, and how CMMs like her support them.
  • Positive Women Living Positively

    A recent evaluation of our programme in Uganda found that HIV-positive women who receive antenatal services at an m2m-supported health facility have better overall psychosocial wellbeing compared to women who do not have access to m2m’s Mentor Mothers.To better understand what this means for our clients, we asked Silindile Shozi, a Mentor Mother who runs m2m’s programme at Turton Clinic in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, as well as two of her clients, about the improvements they see every day.

    Happy Maifadi walked into the health centre to find out if her baby’s HIV test results were back but she was not nervous. She was confident that her baby would test negative because she had the support Velna Malobolo, a Mentor Mother, throughout her pregnancy.

    “They taught me about the stages of pregnancy, they counselled me about HIV, my CD4 count [a measure of the strength of the immune system] and how to take my medication. I also learned that as a mother who is HIV-positive it is possible for my baby to be HIV-negative.” – Happy Maifadi
