- Mother to Mother intervention: The Mother to mother intervention contributes to the elimination of transmission of HIV from mother to child. The intervention is led by women living with HIV known as mother mentors.

The list is used to follow up on clients at home where volunteers provide treatment support and referral to care centers where necessary.
