mothers2mothers (m2m) trains and employs HIV-positive mothers as frontline health workers in sub-Saharan Africa to eliminate paediatric AIDS. Also known as Mentor Mothers, these women support pregnant women living with HIV to start and adhere to Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT) treatment through pregnancy and breastfeeding, where they have virtually eliminated generation transfer of HIV for five years in a row since 2014. To better support these Mentor Mothers, m2m embarked on a digital health transformation to digitise all paper-based records and processes, with the ultimate goal of improving client retention in care and adherence to treatment.

“Mentor Mothers are better able to help us because they are in our shoes; they understand better what we go through.”
