m2m is an Africa-based, global non-governmental organisation (NGO) that unlocks the potential of mothers and their families through scalable, high-impact interventions because a healthy generation starts with mothers.  Since 2001, m2m has scaled its programmatic platform across nine countries to provide education and support to almost 1.5 million HIV-positive women through its Mentor Mother Model; a widely supported, evidence-based peer intervention.m2m’s peer mentor platform is designed to provide optimal identification and management of at-risk and high-need clients. Through the entry point of engaging mothers, m2m’s family-centered approach integrates services to meet the needs of women, children, adolescents, and male partners. m2m’s peer mentor-based service delivery addresses key determinants of health, increases knowledge and skills among clients and their families, and strengthens referrals and linkages between community and health facilities.  Fifteen years of data demonstrate m2m’s outcomes: retaining women and their families in care; supporting treatment adherence for individuals infected and affected by HIV; driving social and behavior change for HIV prevention, care and treatment; and improved sexual and reproductive health (SRH).  m2m’s peer mentors work both at the individual level—providing information and linking to resources, boosting motivation and behavioral skills, and building a sense of self-efficacy and control to foster healthy behaviors and skills acquisition; and at the community and institutional levels—engaging social networks, combating harmful social norms, and strengthening health systems.
