Mozambique

JSI works with the government of Mozambique and local partners to strengthen the health system and improve access to essential commodities, vaccines, and health services. We design and implement community-level programs that are tailored to meet the needs of specific communities. We also work at the national level to help design policies and strategies that incentivize quality and expand access to the most vulnerable populations.

JSI began working in Mozambique in the late 1980’s to increase access to quality family planning services and commodities. Since then, our programs have expanded to include women’s and children’s health, HIV, malaria, injection safety, health care waste management, heath supply chain management, and environmental health.

We have a long history of working with the government to strengthen the supply chain and build management capacity, including capacity building for warehousing, tracking, quantifying, and purchasing commodities. Our work has improved the supply chain for essential health, family planning, and malaria commodities by supporting the government’s efforts to strengthen the supply chain at the national and district levels. We have also engaged communities and faith-based organizations to promote safe practices and effective treatments to prevent the spread of HIV.

We continue to work with global and national stakeholders to strengthen Mozambique’s health system. Today our work focuses on building the capacity of local organizations to reduce the incidence of HIV infections in adolescent girls and young women, strengthening data systems quality to promote data-driven decisionmaking, social behavior change for voluntary male circumcision, and malaria prevention.
