Mozambique

HAI was founded in 1987, under the name Mozambique Health Committee, to support Mozambique’s Ministry of Health (MISAU) to rebuild their damaged health infrastructure following years of armed conflict.

Located on the southeastern coast of Africa, Mozambique’s population is both one of the fastest growing in the world [#16] and one of the poorest [#7]. However, 40 years ago, the country looked to be on a very different trajectory.

Following a decade-long resistance movement, Mozambique won independence from Portugal in 1975 and set to work forming a new government committed to social justice. In fact, Mozambique’s early embrace of a free public education and primary health care systems gained global attention.  Unfortunately, so did their support for anti-apartheid movements in neighboring Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) and South Africa.  

HAI’s Mozambique offices are located in Maputo, Beira, & Chimoio.

~$4 MILLION

In the wake of 2019’s Cyclone Idai, HAI helped identify and coordinate nearly $4 million dollars worth of resources in support of Mozambique’s National Health Service response.

17 YEARS 🎗

In 2003, 17 years after the first HIV diagnosis in Mozambique, HAI helped elaborate and implement the first national HIV/AIDS treatment business plan, offering HIV treatment through the nationl health system for the first time. 

100+

In close partnership with the Beira Operations Research Center (CIOB), HAI provides technical assistance and training to Mozambican health researchers.  This has resulted in more than 100 health system studies, publications, and presentations by Mozambican health professionals

In response, the apartheid governments of Rhodesia and South Africa waged a 15-year-long proxy war against the progressive government of Mozambique.  This, coupled with harsh austerity measures imposed by international lenders resulted in a severely under-resourced national health system left to face the global AIDS and MDR-TB crises, widespread poverty and malnutrition, and a growing mental health burden.

This is the context in which HAI supports the Mozambican Ministry of Health in building a strong, resilient public sector health system.

Today, our work in Mozambique continues with a diverse portfolio of health system strengthening engagements.  From leadership & management training focused on data-driven decision making under our multi-year IDEAs Project, to rebuilding and re-equipping Sofala Province’s health infrastructure in the wake of Cyclone Idai, to taking on some of the most complicated and underresourced health threats in Mozambique: tuberculosis, hypertension, and mental health.

Explore HAI’s Portfolio of current and recent Mozambique-based programs below.

HAI is not in a district or health facility with their own program. They are part of the public system itself. They are integrated. […] HAI was crucial when some organizations did not believe that they could do things in an integrated manner. HAI provided the example: to follow one program, which is the country’s program.
