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.

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased effectiveness of the Government of Mozambique’s response with sensitivity to vulnerable populations, including women who bear a unique burden in the face of the pandemic; and (2) improved responsiveness and gender sensitivity of health system planning and policies adequately contextualized to the Mozambican context, ensuring the Mozambique government is responsive to the evolving pandemic with the latest evidence and technology to best serve its population and high-risk groups.
