In five provinces, this project works to ensure access to sexual and reproductive health services—including HIV prevention services—for highly marginalized and vulnerable populations like female sex workers, gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and prisoners.

Project Date: 2015 - present
Funder: US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Anadarko
Country: Mozambique

42,797 sex workers, prison inmates, & men who have sex with men participated in individual or small group HIV prevention activities

40,000+ individuals tested and counseled on HIV

1,717 health care providers trained in the provision of services for key populations & other vulnerable populations

17 health facilities in five provinces now offer key population-friendly services

What We Do

  • Improve access to HIV services for key populations using the “reach–test–treat and retain–sustain–empower” strategy
  • Reduce structural barriers to accessing quality health services, ensuring universal access to services that promote social equality and human rights
  • Generate demand for HIV services through peer educators and community health workers
  • Develop models for engaging with and strengthening the capacities of government, civil society, and partners in policy development and implementation
  • Partner with Ministry of Health, National AIDS Council, and Ministry of Justice at the central and provincial levels to continue designing and implementing key population-friendly guidelines
