Despite the initiatives the Government of Mozambique has taken to combat the health issues, half of the country’s population still lives below the poverty line and lacks access to health care, HIV testing and treatment, and reproductive health services. In this context, there are an estimated 1.8 million orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) who are made vulnerable due to their lack of access to quality education, healthcare, food, shelter, psychosocial support, and exposure to child labor, human trafficking, sexual abuse and exploitation, and violence.
We work to increase OVC access to primary health care, improve OVC access to HIV counseling, testing, and treatment, increase access to youth-friendly reproductive health services, and increase the uptake of and adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART). We also work to enhance community-based case management in Mozambique by strengthening the cadres of community-based volunteers. We also help coordinate care, protection and support services for OVC households across government, NGO, and implementing partners in the country.Support Our Mission
