Significant progress has been made over the last decade towards the elimination of paediatric HIV. Yet, each day approximately 700 children are still infected with HIV. 90% of these children live in sub-Saharan Africa and approximately half of children infected with HIV will die before age two if the virus is untreated. This situation is both tragic and unnecessary, as it is almost entirely preventable. mothers2mothers (m2m) is changing that. We believe in the power of women to eliminate paediatric HIV and create health and hope for themselves and their babies, families, and communities. We train, employ, and empower 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-hand knowledge of HIV makes them highly effective peer mentors. Since our founding in 2001, we have reached more than 1.2 million HIV-positive mothers in nine countries with essential health education and psychosocial support, and have helped establish affiliated Mentor Mother programmes in two additional countries. mothers2mothers has now enhanced the scope of its work to provide education, support, and referrals on a wide range of health issues important to our clients and critical to improving their overall health , including TB, cervical cancer, nutrition, neonatal male circumcision, gender-based violence, malaria reproductive health, and family planning. No baby should be born with HIV and no mother should die of HIV. Together we can eliminate paediatric HIV.
