In 2019, Mozambique was struck by two cyclones: Cyclone Idai in Sofala province and Cyclone Kenneth in Cabo Delgado province. CUAMM has strengthened the interventions at national level in the area of non-communicable diseases, helping to develop national guidelines on managing diabetes and hypertension. In Cabo Delgado, we stepped up our activities to support maternal and child health and started to bolster our action also in the area of sexual and reproductive health of adolescents and young people, with interventions to fight HIV/AIDS by promoting counselling. In Sofala province, our work on maternal and child health was extended to the districts and hospitals of Dondo and Nhamatanda, as well as Beira, through the redevelopment of the neonatology unit. In these areas, there have been numerous interventions to support the health facilities affected by Cyclone Idai; a referral system of emergency obstetric and paediatric care was set up in the city of Beira and 20 0community activists were engaged in cholera prEventson.
