MSF Projects in Mozambique

Mozambique

Low-level conflict in central Mozambique has displaced communities along border areas, reducing access to healthcare. General healthcare provision has been affected by a reduced health budget, resulting in shortages of health staff and drug supplies.

Despite ambitious plans to roll out ‘test and start’ to provide immediate treatment to everyone diagnosed with HIV, Mozambique is struggling to respond to an epidemic now affecting around 13 per cent of people aged 15-49.

In Maputo, we provide care for HIV patients who need second- or third-line antiretroviral (ARV) treatment and treatment for co-infections such as Kaposi’s sarcoma, drug-resistant TB and hepatitis.

We work with community treatment groups in Tete, and are working to improve diagnosis, treatment and continuity of care in Maputo and Beira.

Our teams in Tete and Beira provide sexual and reproductive health services, including HIV testing and treatment for vulnerable and stigmatised groups, such as sex workers and men who have sex with men (MSM), as part of MSF’s transnational ‘corridor’ project along transport routes between Malawi and Mozambique.
