Each day approximately 700 children are infected with HIV, 90 percent of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Half will die before age two if the virus is left untreated. Yet the transmission of HIV from mother to child is preventable.
Mothers2Mothers believes in the power of women to eliminate pediatric HIV and create health and hope for themselves and their babies, families, and communities. They train, employ, and empower Mentor Mothers, mothers living with HIV, to work alongside doctors and nurses in understaffed health centres.
Mentor Mothers also provides health education and psychosocial support to other HIV-positive mothers on how they can protect their babies from HIV infection, and keep themselves and their families healthy.
Since 2001, mothers2mothers has reached more than 1.5 million HIV-positive mothers in nine countries. They have expanded their work to provide education, support, and referrals on a wide range of health issues, including TB, cervical cancer, nutrition, neonatal male circumcision, gender-based violence, malaria reproductive health, and family planning.
It’s unacceptable… it’s tragic… because it’s almost entirely preventable.
