- Build a strong local response to sexual and gender-based violence so that survivors get the help they need without delay.
- Support key populations with HIV and reproductive health services—including men who have sex with men and female sex workers—as these groups are not only at higher risk for HIV, but also experience the most stigma in seeking services.
- Decrease harmful practices, sociocultural norms, and beliefs that limit adolescent girls and young women’s decision making and control over their sexual and reproductive health, sexuality, and bodily integrity.
- Strengthen health centers and support community health workers so that more people—especially young people—have access to the contraceptive information and services they need.
- Work alongside local and international organizations to challenge restrictive policies and inspire policymakers and communities to remove barriers to sexual and reproductive rights.
- Work at all levels of society—including with adolescent girls and young women, their families, and communities—to shift social norms and behaviors that perpetuate child, early, and forced marriage.
- Stop preventable maternal deaths by making sure women can access quality, respectful maternal care at every point—from their homes to the health facility.
In Mozambique since 1997.
With one-third of the population between 10-24 years old, Mozambique is at a crossroads—now is the time to get young people with the information they need to protect their health and rights. In partnership with government and community stakeholders, Pathfinder is working across Mozambique—in every province—to bring sexual and reproductive health care to those who need it most. Pathfinder works to strengthen the health system and workforce across the country, build a strong response to sexual and gender-based violence, and challenge restrictive policies to remove barriers to sexual and reproductive rights.
