Our impact

  • More than 1.29 million Mozambicans have learned their HIV status through Jhpiego-led initiatives, and over 981,000 men have received voluntary medical male circumcision services for HIV prevention.
  • At Jhpiego-supported health care facilities, over 1.1 million pregnant women attended antenatal care visits with skilled providers, and more than 1.4 million babies were delivered with a skilled attendant.
  • More than 2.2 million clients initiated or maintained a family planning method, with over 1.3 million clients adopting a family planning method during a visit for maternal, newborn and child health services.
  • More than 228,000 people were reached by a Jhpiego-supported intervention against gender-based violence.

Current programs


  • Maternal and Child Survival Program

    The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Global Health’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) focuses on 25 high-priority countries with the ultimate goal of preventing child and maternal deaths. MCSP is introducing and supporting high-impact, sustainable reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) interventions in partnership with ministries of health and other partners. In addition to contributing to high-level technical and policy dialogue at the global level, MCSP provides tailored technical assistance to help countries meet specific priorities and contextual needs of local, sustainable RMNCH programs. For information on what MCSP is doing in this country, visit here: http://www.mcsprogram.org/where-we-work/mozambique/.

  • Comprehensive Approaches to Strengthening the Health System and HIV Response in the Mozambique under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief

    This six-year project, funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), supports the Mozambican Ministry of Health (MOH) to strengthen the health care system and deliver evidence-based interventions to achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation in Mozambique, as outlined in the MOH’s HIV and AIDS Response Strategic Acceleration Plan. Jhpiego implements this national project in coordination with the Government of Mozambique and key implementing partners, including two local nongovernmental organizations. Jhpiego is strengthening the capacity of the Mozambican MOH to expand quality services in the following technical areas: voluntary medical male circumcision, HIV counseling and testing, gender-based violence, TB infection control, and occupational health and workplace safety for health care workers. Additionally, Jhpiego collaborates with the MOH to strengthen the health system via health information systems, human resources for health planning and deployment, and continuing education.

  • Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique Treatment Program Support

    Under this project, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, Jhpiego is working with the Mozambican defense force (known as Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique, or FADM) to strengthen and scale up a comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment program. The project goal is to reduce the number of new HIV infections and other sexually transmitted infections among FADM members, their families and the civilian communities served by FADM. Jhpiego is working with FADM to: 1) maintain and expand antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS care and treatment; 2) scale up HIV/AIDS testing services; 3) integrate care for HIV and TB at target sites; 4) initiate pregnant or breastfeeding women on lifelong antiretroviral therapy for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV; 5) ensure that FADM clinical laboratories have adequate equipment/supplies to provide HIV and TB laboratory services; and 6) support HIV clinical monitoring systems.

  • Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique Prevention Program Support

    This project, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, seeks to reduce new HIV infections and other sexually transmitted infections among members of the Mozambican defense force (known as Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique, or FADM), their families and the civilian communities served by FADM. Jhpiego is working to achieve this goal by supporting FADM to: 1) perform voluntary medical male circumcisions for the military population and civilians; 2) provide HIV testing services to military and civilians and link those who test positive for HIV with care and treatment services; and 3) implement non-clinical HIV prevention activities.

  • Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique Treat All Study Support

    Under this project funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, Jhpiego is working directly with the Mozambican defense force (known as Forças Armadas de Defesa de Moçambique, or FADM) to conduct a multi-year study. This study is evaluating the impact of implementing the “Treat All” approach for people living with HIV in a military setting, including the impact on the health of military personnel and HIV incidence and transmission in surrounding communities.

  • Strengthening High-Impact Interventions for an AIDS-Free Generation Project

    Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by John Snow, Inc., AIDSFree is a global program to improve the quality and effectiveness of high-impact, evidence-based HIV/AIDS interventions to meet country-specific goals across the developing world. As a subcontractor to JSI, Jhpiego serves as the lead implementing partner for voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) globally. In Mozambique, Jhpiego leads the AIDSFree VMMC Project with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and in collaboration with USAID implementing partners Communication for Improved Health Outcomes (Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs) and Procurement and Supply Management (Chemonics). The project aims to increase demand for and access to safe, high-quality VMMC and HIV testing and counseling services, as well as increase linkages to care and treatment for individuals who are HIV-positive or have a sexually transmitted infection. The project works at the national level, with MOH VMMC leadership, and in two provinces (Manica and Tete) where Jhpiego supports MOH provincial counterparts to provide VMMC and HIV testing and counseling services.

  • Technical Assistance to Provide High-Quality Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision

    Under this multi-country award from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Jhpiego provides technical assistance as needed to guarantee the safety, effectiveness, efficiency, accountability and client/provider satisfaction in implementation and scale-up of voluntary medical male circumcision. The project targets 14 countries that are priorities of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, including Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Uganda.

  • Transforming Intermittent Preventive Treatment for Optimal Pregnancy

    Under this Unitaid-funded, five-year grant, Jhpiego is partnering with ISGlobal to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Madagascar and Mozambique by: 1) introducing and setting the stage for scale-up of community intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy (IPTp); 2) introducing and increasing demand for quality-assured sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) for IPTp; and 3) generating evidence for World Health Organization policy change. To achieve desired results, Jhpiego is also collaborating with Medicines for Malaria Venture (to bring quality-assured SP to market) and the World Health Organization (to ensure SP resistance monitoring and foster collaboration between national reproductive health programs and national malaria control programs).
