Our work in Ghana

In late 2019, mothers2mothers opened its first office in West Africa—bringing our integrated approach and Mentor Mother Model to Ghana. We offer integrated Early Child Development (ECD), health, and well-being services to women, children, and their families.

Working from the Ashaiman Polyclinic and the Atua Government Hospital, Mentor Mothers are engaging pregnant women and new mothers— living with, or at risk of, HIV—ensuring that they receive life-saving education and support to help their families access healthcare, start and adhere to treatment, and stay in care. In 2022, we opened up our third site at the Gaa West Hospital, in an effort to accelerate efforts to address the challenges faced by adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in Accra.

Our services include Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health, nurturing care, and Early Childhood Development— designed to support the critical period of development from conception, through pregnancy and breastfeeding, to when children reach three years of age.

m2m is proud to be working in partnership with the Government of Ghana (the Ghana Health Service and National AIDS Control Programme under the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection) and other local stakeholders to achieve our aims.
