What is A2M2?
A2M2, (Attack Avoidable Maternal Mortality/Morbidity) is an international teen-led nonprofit that aims to tackle the unfathomable loss of lives and burden of disease caused by mortality and morbidity during pregnancy and childbirth. Apart from multiple online efforts, we are present on the ground in 22 countries around the world and are constantly working to spearhead change and dialogue in underdeveloped, neglected and remote communities. A2M2 was started by Rushank Goyal in May 2021 and we now have 30+ teenagers working to further our mission.
