  • Description:
    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has supported Mozambique’s public health sector since 2000 to help develop and strengthen the country’s response to the dual HIV and tuberculosis (TB) epidemics. CDC is a lead implementing agency of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and works closely with the Ministry of Health of Mozambique (MISAU), the Mozambican National Institute of Health, and various implementing partners to help the country achieve HIV epidemic control in seven of the country's 11 provinces. CDC´s activities include strengthening health systems, including laboratories, surveillance, infrastructure, and human resources for health. CDC is committed to using data to inform program decision-making to improve healthcare service delivery. The agency’s efforts focus on supporting and creating capacity for HIV and TB biological and behavioral surveillance that can inform the national response to these diseases.

    Supporting Integrated HIV Prevention and Treatment Services: CDC supports the delivery of HIV prevention and treatment services in 498 health facilities by offering technical and financial assistance to the MISAU to further the country’s capacity to reach the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) global epidemic control targets. With an emphasis on interventions that improve equitable coverage of HIV services among vulnerable and hard-to-reach populations, CDC is committed to strategic HIV case-finding and preventing new HIV infections through voluntary medical male circumcisions, pre and post-exposure prophylaxis, programs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission, key populations, adolescent girls and young women, and gender-based violence CDC and the MISAU are committed to scaling up client-centered services, putting all HIV-positive clients on antiretroviral therapy (ART), providing differentiated service delivery models to improve HIV treatment coverage and retention, and ensuring that patients have suppressed HIV viral loads, ultimately reducing morbidity, mortality, and transmission. Responding to HIV and Tuberculosis Co-Infection: To respond to TB, the leading cause of death among people living with HIV (PLHIV), CDC provides technical assistance for developing national policies, strategies, training, communication materials, and mentoring and supervising activities. This work dramatically improves laboratory and clinical capacity for TB/HIV prevention, diagnostics, and treatment. CDC also provides service delivery support for cervical cancer prevention and treatment among PLHIV and screening and treatment of advanced HIV disease and related comorbidities. Mitigating Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Since the onset of COVID-19, CDC has worked with national health authorities to help monitor and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on HIV and TB programs. This includes funding and technical assistance to develop and implement health policies.Mozambique.pdf
