What We Do

Through our Mentor Mother Model, m2m employs local women living with HIV as community health workers to meet the growing and urgent health needs of the communities we serve. These “Mentor Mothers” deliver integrated primary health care services to dramatically improve the health and well-being of:  


m2m provides women and their families with access to integrated primary health care services including HIV prevention, care, and treatment, services, education and screening for noncommunicable diseases, tuberculosis and malaria, as well as family planning, nutrition support, and referrals for other vital services. We ensure our clients start and stay in care. 


m2m is committed to ensuring that every child thrives, not just survives, by providing services that protect and improve the health and development of infants and children. This includes focusing on ending paediatric HIV/AIDS, through testing, care, and treatment, as well as providing integrated Early Childhood Development services, immunisations, and tackling related conditions like malaria. 


m2m fosters the health and well-being of adolescent girls and boys, and young men and women, with a focus on preventing HIV infections and related illnesses by providing sexual and reproductive health services. m2m also delivers youth-friendly services for those living with HIV. 


m2m also works with special populations. This includes male partners of existing clients, as well as groups where there are high numbers of new HIV infections and additional health risks. This includes internally displaced people, and Key Populations such as men who have sex with men.

Faustina’s Story

“I found out I was HIV-positive after giving birth to my sixth child. He became sick, and was found to have tuberculosis (TB). He also tested positive for HIV.

This led to my husband, who had been sick for a while, also being tested. He, too, was diagnosed with HIV and TB. Due to lack of treatment, I lost them both.

My life was turned upside down. I faced a lot of stigma in my community. I lost my source of income.

What kept me going was volunteering at an HIV Support Group at my clinic, helping people to accept their status.

When mothers2mothers opened a programme in Ghana in 2019, I was overjoyed to be employed as a Team Lead. Finally, after working unpaid for nine years, I was recognised and paid for my work.

Today, I no longer face stigma, my efforts are recognised by my community, and I go to work every day with pride.”
