MSF Projects in Mozambique


Our permanent teams in Mozambique work in Maputo and Beira, providing care to patients with advanced HIV and with, or at risk, of developing co-infections such as Kaposi’s sarcoma, drug-resistant TB and hepatitis.

We run targeted activities to support vulnerable or stigmatised groups, including a drop-in centre in Maputo for people who use drugs, and sexual and reproductive health services, including HIV testing and treatment, for sex workers and men who have sex with men.

In March 2019, Cyclone Idai wiped out buildings and infrastructure, including the water supply system, leaving thousands in urgent need of assistance and at risk of water-borne diseases such as cholera. We sent multiple emergency teams and supplies to support the response, which was ongoing when another tropical storm, Cyclone Kenneth, hit the coast of Cabo Delgado province, in the country’s north at the beginning of May.

MSF teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Mozambique.

Cholera outbreak in Beira, Mozambique

Cholera breaks out in Mozambique in the wake of Cyclone Idai and catastrophic floods

Cyclone Idai left thousands of people in and around Beira vulnerable and exposed to the elements. Given the amount of water that passed through the city - and the devastating impact it had on infrastructure, including the water supply system - outbreaks of waterborne diseases such as cholera were a very real risk.

The government announced the first recorded cases of cholera on 27 March. Water and sanitation expert Anja Borojevic explains MSF's response to the emergency.
