Our Health, Our Needs

In 2015, the Mozambican Ministry of Health approved guidelines for the implementation of an integrated friendly and rights-based approach for key populations. To assess and enhance the implementation of these guidelines, this study measured the sex workers’ and men who have sex with men’s satisfaction and perceptions surrounding HIV and SRH services in Mozambique’s public health system.
