Eliminating new HIV infections among Nigerian children by empowering mothers and women with disabilities to access Reproductive Health and PMTCT services in Oyo and Osun States, Nigeria (ENHANCE Project)

The "Eliminating new HIV infections among Nigerian children by empowering mothers and women with disabilities to access Reproductive Health and PMTCT services in Oyo and Osun States, Nigeria" (ENHANCE Project) contributes to the elimination of new HIV infections among Nigerian children and Keeping their Mothers Alive through the engagement of Mentor Mothers.

 

125 Mentor Mothers, made up of women living with disabilities, women living with HIV and other women of reproductive age, were equipped with information and skills to provide information to their peers and to link them with PMTCT and Sexual and Reproductive Health services in public health facilities. They also follow up with their clients to ensure adherence to treatment. Yetunde Jimoh is an example of such women who was restored to her treatment as a result of being followed up by a mentor mother, Grace Niniola, after she started defaulting in her treatment. Yetunde is now better enabled to take care of herself and her children, thanks to the ENHANCE Project!
