This 27-page evaluation report shares findings from an evaluation of mothers2mothers (m2m), a peer support programme designed to provide education and psychosocial support to HIV-positive pregnant women and new mothers, help women access existing health care services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), and follow up to ensure mothers and babies receive appropriate medical care after delivery. The Horizons Program of the Population Council, in collaboration with Health Systems Trust, completed this first evaluation of m2m, which suggests that m2m plays an important role in providing a continuum of care for HIV-positive women and infants.
