The Guardian Profiles mothers2mothers Group That Mentors HIV-Positive Mothers

The Guardian: Pregnant and diagnosed with HIV: the group providing support for mothers
“…[mothers2mothers (M2M)] started in 2001 and has helped 1.4 million HIV-positive mothers in nine sub-Saharan African countries. It currently operates in Kenya, South Africa, Malawi, Lesotho, Uganda, Swaziland, and Zambia — seven countries where it has virtually eliminated mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) among its patients, with a 2.1 percent transmission rate (the U.N. classifies virtual elimination as less than five percent)…” (McNeish, 9/1).
