Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies: The Path to eMTCT

13699366_10154482786634781_761840071_oToday at AIDS 2016, mothers2mothers’ (m2m) Sarah Chapman, presented an oral abstract at the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies: The Path to eMTCT session. The research is based on m2m’s 2014 Annual Evaluation data, and demonstrates how women who have two or more contacts with a m2m Mentor Mother are significantly more likely to demonstrate positive health behaviours (such as breastfeeding and disclosure), as well as access treatment to protect their babies from HIV infection and keep themselves healthy. Final transmission rates at the 18-24 month test are also greatly improved.
