  • Community Mentor Mother Musana Aisha on TB

    TB is one of the world’s top health challenges, with nine million new cases each year. And it’s a major concern for HIV-positive pregnant women, who are 10 times more likely to be infected with TB than women who are negative.

    m2m Community Mentor Mother Musana Aisha in Uganda, who educates and supports women about HIV and TB as well as other critical health issues, shared with us why TB is so dangerous for the women she serves.

    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

  • Independent evaluation produces exciting findings

    Uganda-CBAAn independent evaluation of m2m’s programme in Uganda provides concrete evidence of something mothers2mothers has long believed — that m2m’s Mentor Mother Model improves maternal and infant health outcomes, while at the same time achieving significant savings by preventing paediatric HIV infections, thereby reducing HIV treatment costs.

  • South African Model Candice Swanepoel supports m2m

    The ResultsWhen South African model Candice Swanepoel partnered with Mother Denim to design a spring collection, she was asked to select a charity to receive proceeds of the sales. We are delighted that mothers2mothers was the perfect fit! “Not only was I able to explore my own creativity, but also garner attention and support for an organisation that saves lives and empowers women and mothers-to-be,” Candice said.
