In direct response to the government's strategy to reach everyone with HIV testing and treatment services, m2m Malawi, our largest country program, employs over 400 women living with HIV as Community Health Workers. These "Mentor Mothers" work both at health facilities and door to door in local communities to reach other women, their children and their families with health services and education to create healthy, thriving families.

Africa's health systems are under tremendous strain. According to the World Health Organization, the continent has a shortage of 4.2 million healthcare workers, and by 2030 that figure will increase to 6.1 million. This is a major contributor to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa where over 250 children are infected with HIV each day, and nearly 7,000 adolescent girls and young women infected globally each week, the majority of whom live in the region.


We provide our full range of family-centred services spanning pregnancy, birth, childhood, and adolescence in the country. This includes prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH), early childhood development (ECD), and paediatric care and support. Mentor Mothers work door-to-door in local communities, linking women and local communities, linking women and families to nearby health centres for medical care.

Long-Term Impact

Addressing Africa's healthcare gap is critical to meeting the Global Goal of eliminating HIV/AIDS by 2030 and UNAIDS targets pertaining to testing, treatment, and viral suppression. To this end, the African Union has called for two million more community health workers to be deployed across the continent by 2020. Failure to meet this challenge will continue to limit Africa's socio-economic development.
