Every year mothers2mothers (m2m) evaluates the performance of our country programmes. The results for 2013 are now in and we are delighted to report that m2m clients and their babies showed continued improvement in health behaviours and outcomes, and the performance at sites with an m2m presence surpassed almost all national rates where data are available. Even more exciting, analysis reveals that women who engaged a Mentor Mother two or more times were significantly more likely to adopt healthy behaviours than clients who saw a Mentor Mother only once.
“This suggests how effective Mentor Mothers are in getting women to adopt healthy behaviours, engage in care, and follow their treatment,” says Frank Beadle de Palomo, m2m’s President and CEO. “At m2m, we are committed to retaining an even greater number of HIV-positive women in care throughout their pregnancy and after birth to ensure that they adhere to medical treatments so critical to keeping themselves and their babies healthy.”
