More about the work we do in Mozambique

Pivotal studies have also been completed to determine the influence that the recently introduced Test & Start policy had had in Lesotho, especially on the healthy HIV+ population. The outcomes will be used to formulate national guidelines on ART programs and community outreach.

EQUIP Partners In Hope will undertake cross-sectional-qualitative studies, involving approximately 200 interviews, to establish the acceptability of Decentralized Models of Care (DMOC) for stable and unstable clients.

About Mozambique

Following a long civil war, Mozambique has made the transition to peace, stability and sustained economic growth, providing an essential link between landlocked neighbors and the global marketplace.
Its ties to South Africa’s industrial heartland underscore the fact that the country’s economic, political and social progress is vital to the interests of the region. However, the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases, as well as high infant mortality, have resulted in the distressingly low life expectancy of just 50 years.
Health infrastructure is limited; more than half of Mozambicans must walk an hour or more to their nearest health facility, and medicine stockouts are common. There are only three doctors per 100,000 people—a proportion that is among the lowest in the world. Systems for tracking, motivating and retaining staff are weak, and frontline health providers are often poorly trained and have limited management skills.
