About the Organization

mothers2mothers (m2m) is an African NGO that employs women living with HIV as Community Health Workers. These “Mentor Mothers” deliver health services at clinics and in communities across ten African nations. Since 2001, we have reached nearly 15 million people with health services, created almost 12,000 jobs for women living with HIV and helped to prevent over 4.3 million HIV infections. Now m2m is evolving to become a primary health care organization, using our proven, peer-led model to tackle new health challenges and reach more people, all with the aim of building a fairer, healthier future. m2m has worked in Malawi since 2008. Since launching in 2008, Malawi has grown to be one of m2m’s most diverse programmes. The programme spans HIV prevention, care, and treatment, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCH), early childhood development (ECD) and nutrition services, with an increasing focus on support for adolescent girls and young women.
