From House Of Me: Annie Lennox will tomorrow be taking part in a presentation in London by Dr Mitchell Besser, the Founder of Mothers2mothers. m2m is an exceptional organization which, Lennox personally visited in Khayelitsha, Cape Town earlier this year.
It offers an effective, sustainable model of care that provides education and support for pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV/AIDS based in South Africa. “Our Vision is a world in which babies are not infected with HIV and where mothers with HIV/AIDS live long and healthy lives, caring for their families and having hope for the future.
Our Mission is to create an effective, sustainable model of care that provides education and support for pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV/AIDS. Our goals are to:
Prevent babies from contracting HIV through mother-to-child transmission Keep mothers and babies living with HIV/AIDS alive and healthy by increasing their access to health-sustaining medical care Empower mothers living with HIV/AIDS, enabling them to fight stigma in their communities and to live positive and productive lives” The presentation aims to raise awareness about the enormous disparities that exist between the care available to pregnant women and mothers in resource rich and resource poor countries and the attendant disparities in health outcomes.
