Though Mozambique’s economy is progressively recovering, its health system is still fragile and has inadequate financial and human resources. CUAMM has been active here for 40 years, strengthened national interventions for non-communicable diseases, helping develop guidelines on diabetes and hypertension. In the province of Cabo Delgado, we have continued to support maternal and child health and fight malaria. In the province of Sofala, our action for maternal and child health extended to the districts of Dondo and Nhamatanda. In Beira and in the Tete province, we have bolstered our actions against HIV/AIDS among adolescents, offering counseling and encouraging HIV testing.
