What we do


mothers2mothers (m2m) is an international NGO founded in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001. m2m trains, employs and pays HIV-positive women to deliver health services, advice, and support to women and their families at health facilities and in local communities. From an initial focus on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV, m2m has expanded into five related areas to deliver benefits for women and their families at all stages of life. As well as a continued focus on HIV-prevention and education, m2m’s services now also include early childhood development, paediatric care and support, and adolescent mentoring.
Since 2001, m2m has served more than 10.5M women and children under two (10,672,485) in Southern and Eastern Africa and has created job opportunities for over 10,000 HIV-positive women, with around 1,500 currently employed.
