In Mozambique, FHI 360 is dedicated to addressing key social and health issues to improve the well-being of the country’s people. To address these challenges, we work closely with government and local partners to design and implement community-level programs tailored to meet specific needs.
FHI 360’s presence in Mozambique dates back to the early 2000s when we led the implementation of a program for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in the Zambezia province. Since then, our programs have expanded to include improving Mozambique’s response to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), malaria and undernutrition; strengthening government and local institutions; and protecting the environment. Specifically, we provide training and ongoing support to clinicians in the care and treatment of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria, as well as extensive technical support to strengthen the country’s nutrition policies, programs, strategies and systems.
FHI 360’s work in Mozambique has resulted in the successful upgrade of laboratory and health facilities and the introduction of and support for testing technologies that confirm timely diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.
Monitoring and evaluation is an important part of our work in Mozambique. Our team conducts assessments to improve patient services in pharmacies, assess the feasibility and acceptability of mobile messaging for health, examine clinical responses to gender-based violence and determine whether health services are appropriately allocated to reach people needing these services the most.
Today, FHI 360 is working to build a sustainable future for Mozambique. In addition to providing support for the nation’s most pressing health challenges, our programs focus on bolstering the capacity of civil society. We strengthen the management and technical capacities of local organizations — equipping them with the resources to better serve their communities — and promote sustainable fisheries and aquaculture practices for enhanced livelihoods and biodiversity. FHI 360’s work reaches 11 provinces across the country.
