We would love to work together to discover how best we can partner to make a difference, but first let us introduce ourselves…
Meet mothers2mothers (m2m):
m2m is an African Primary Health Care organisation that employs women living with HIV as community health workers across 10 African nations. These “Mentor Mothers” deliver integrated health services at clinics and in communities to ensure everyone, everywhere has access to the services they need to be healthy and stay in care. Over the next five years, this proven, peer-led model is being scaled up to double down on ending HIV, as well as to tackle new health challenges and reach more people—all with the aim of building a fairer, healthier future. The employment of local women as community health workers means that we are delivering a model that prioritises healthcare for families who need it most, delivered by women who know them best.
Since its creation in 2001, m2m has created jobs for nearly 12,000 women living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa and, together, they have reached over 15M people with critical health services and education. In 2021, m2m reached over 1.6M people across 10 African nations, including 402,616 adolescents (ages 10-19)—51% more than the year before. Read more about our impact here.
Serving the next generation:
Increasingly, adolescent girls and young women are disproportionately bearing the brunt of the HIV/AIDS epidemic—facing three times the risk of acquiring HIV than their male peers in sub-Saharan Africa. This makes adolescent girls and young women a key client group of m2m, and a growing focus of the organisation.
Your support can help us build a healthier, more equitable world, and unlock a thriving future for the next generation. Find out how below!
