HIV/AIDS Assets and Strategic Focus

Strategic Focus
Since 2000, CDC has supported Mozambique’s Ministry of Health (MOH) in delivering HIV prevention, care, and treatment services; strengthening laboratory, surveillance, infrastructure, and workforce capacity; and developing operational research in all 11 provinces, with intensified efforts in provinces where HIV prevalence and poverty rates are highest.

Building Integrated Care and Treatment Services
CDC supports the delivery of antiretroviral therapy to more than 30,000 adults and children, and is helping introduce viral load and drug resistance assessment for patients. CDC also supports prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission services at more than 200 health care facilities, malaria prophylaxis and treatment , the Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program, and strengthening central and provincial partnerships.

Strengthening Surveillance and Health Information Systems
CDC is supporting the Mozambique MOH to improve the availability, accessibility, quality, and use of service-delivery data; conducting HIV surveillance and behavioral surveys; designing and improving systems to support routine program monitoring; and strengthening and expanding the health management information systems infrastructure.
