Senior Technical Advisor – HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment

by Juma Mzuri  |  at  7:49 AM

m2m is an Africa-based, global non-governmental organisation (NGO) that unlocks the potential of mothers and their families through scalable, high-impact interventions because a healthy generation starts with mothers.  Spanning the time a pregnant woman learns of her HIV infection (about four months of pregnancy) through her family’s lifecycle (infants, children, adolescents, and her partner), m2m’s Mentor Mother Model empowers mothers living with HIV, through education and employment, as role models to help other women and her family access essential services and medical care.  Working alongside doctors and nurses in understaffed health centres as members of the healthcare team, Mentor Mothers provide essential health education and psychosocial support for the prevention of maternal-to-child transmission.  Mentor Mothers are trained and paid, which benefits not only their respective families but also the community as a whole and reduces stigma associated with HIV.  Since its founding, m2m has reached nearly 1.5 million mothers in nine countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
