This project aims to strengthen the capacity of the National Institute for Statistics in Mozambique to improve the availability of reliable and comprehensive sex-disaggregated population data. The goal is to produce gender-sensitive analysis for evidence-based decision making and policy formulation, with a focus on sexual reproductive health and rights, HIV and gender equality. This initiative contributes to the empowerment of women and girls by closing the gap in gender data. Project activities include: (1) providing technical assistance and results reporting expertise in the delivery and analysis of the census; (2) commission at least 8 thematic studies upon completion of the census, including gender analysis and recommendations to advance gender equality; (3) develop a post census strategy to create increased demand from decision-makers for data informed research including campaigns designed to promote thematic studies in the public and policy domains, enhancing their policy impact.
