Building and Strengthening the National Case Management System

In partnership with UNICEF and the Government of Mozambique, we are piloting a one-year project in three districts in Zambezia Province aimed at expanding efforts to build and implement a national case management system that coordinates care, critically needed protection services, and support to vulnerable children and their families.

We are working in partnership with UNICEF and the Government of Mozambique to expand ongoing efforts to build and implement a national integrated case management system that provides and coordinates care and support to children and families, in order to ensure a continuum of care and a holistic approach to the provision of critical protection services. Our aim is to bolster a community-based case management system that integrates health and social protection services and strengthens district capacity and coordination, leading to a more efficient system that delivers services for children and protects them from harm, abuse, and exploitation.

Through this project we are:

  • Strengthening district-level capacity and improving the institutional framework, supervisory infrastructure, and management of data.
  • Working to improve referral pathways from the community to districts, especially for linkages that more effectively address statutory cases.
  • Building the capacity of Community Child Protection Committees (CCPCs) and community-level case care volunteers to identify, refer, and monitor vulnerable children, especially girls and their families, and to coordinate responses and bi-directional referrals to ensure children receive critical support and follow-up.
