Our work in Angola

m2m has been working in Angola since 2019 with a mandate to support the Government of Angola through innovative, scalable solutions to achieve an AIDS-free generation, and end preventable child and maternal deaths.

Our work is being supported through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under the RISE II mechanism.

We are providing technical assistance to the Angolan Ministry of Health and the Instituto Nacional de Luta Contra o SIDA (INLS), while also contributing to the achievement of the 95-95-95 targets through Index Case Tracing and Testing.

At community level, m2m is piloting learning sites, where Mentor Mothers are trained to deliver HIV tests—an important step in bringing trusted care closer to communities.

Mentor Mothers identify index clients (pregnant and breastfeeding women living with HIV). They obtain the client’s consent before following up with HIV testing of their partners and their children in the community.

For those who test positive for HIV, Mentor Mothers link them to a health facility to initiate treatment. In the next fiscal year, we are partnering with USAID to expand our PMTCT services further in Angola.

Our Impact in Angola

Virtual elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV among m2m’s enrolled clients, according to UNAIDS guidelines:


of HIV-positive women enrolled at m2m were initiated on antiretroviral therapy (ART) for life.


of HIV-exposed infants of enrolled m2m clients were given ART to protect them from infection.


of these HIV-exposed infants were tested for HIV at 6-8 weeks.

6 – Our MTCT rate is comparable to the UNAIDS MTCT Indicator, as outlined in their guidelines available here: https://www.unaids.org/sites/default/files/media_asset/2017-Global-AIDS-Monitoring_en.pdf. National benchmark is based on the latest available UNAIDS data, published here: https://www.unaids.org/sites/default/files/media_asset/20190722_UNAIDS_SFSFAF_2019_en.pdf
