What Makes Us Smile9 December 2015
mothers2mothers (m2m) recently completed the 2014 annual evaluation of our facility-to-community peer Mentor Mother programme and we are excited by the findings! Among m2m’s major achievements, mother-to-child transmission of HIV has been virtually eliminated among m2m clients, according to UN Global Plan Guidelines.
The evaluation – which looks at m2m programme performance in Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, and Uganda – also shows the scale of our service delivery. One in four HIV-positive women who delivered their babies in countries with a m2m presence received education and support from a Mentor Mother, through direct implementation or technical support. Furthermore, nearly 106.700 HIV-exposed infants benefitted from the m2m Mentor Mother Model in 2014.
