Description


This project aims to improve Mozambique’s public health sector knowledge, capacity, and surge response for forecasting/modelling, testing, diagnosis, contact tracing, and public health policy formulation to reduce mortality and morbidity from the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. This project provides technical assistance, seconded staff and financial assistance to Mozambique’s National Health Institute to support COVID-19 prevention and containment.

Project activities include:

(1) modelling and forecasting disease; (2) procuring testing kits and establishing “walk-thru” testing centres in high-risk communities with COVID-19 outbreaks; (3) providing infection control/prevention by augmenting contact tracing, transporting test samples for processing and rapid diagnostics (the latter when available); and (4) providing health worker support, including training and personal protective equipment.
