The United States (U.S.) is proud to support Mozambique’s leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. PEPFAR provides service delivery and technical assistance in Mozambique to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of the national HIV/AIDS response. Working together with the Government of Mozambique, PEPFAR is aligning investments to scale up evidence-based interventions in the geographic areas and populations with the highest burden of HIV/AIDS – in line with PEPFAR 3.0.1 Mozambique is participating in the Accelerating Children’s HIV/AIDS Treatment (ACT) Initiative, a two-year effort to enable 300,000 more children living with HIV/AIDS to receive life-saving antiretroviral treatment (ART) across priority countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

Other key priorities include:

  • Expanding treatment services and increasing quality of care to improve treatment outcomes;
  • Scaling up HIV prevention services including voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) and prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) by supporting Option B+;
  • Strengthening the health and social welfare system, including community structures to support orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and services targeting gender-based violence;
  • Implementing cross-cutting activities for HIV/AIDS-related surveillance, including implementing more strategic monitoring and evaluation across programs and strengthening national health information systems to improve management and use of data; and
  • Supporting service-delivery platforms by procuring HIV commodities and providing technical assistance to strengthen supply chain management.
