Service Delivery and M&E Systems(MZ-1)

June 1, Length: 2-6 Months

Location: Mozambique

ICAP began partnering with the Government of Mozambique in 2004 to support the rapid scale-up of HIV care and treatment. We now provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH/MISAU) to meet the broadening needs and priorities of the national HIV program, including supporting national health information systems.

ICAP’s portfolio in Mozambique focuses on institutional capacity building and technical support for HIV service delivery, strategic information for health, developing the health education infrastructure, capacity building for nursing and midwifery, and HIV research.

ICAP is providing technical assistance to realize full coverage of high-quality HIV and TB services. At the district level, this includes capacity building and implementation support to health directorates in Nampula and Zambezia provinces to strengthen and target HIV prevention and care, including adult and pediatric treatment, integrated TB/HIV services, and voluntary medical male circumcision. At the national level, ICAP is working with the MOH to build capacity for service delivery and continuous quality improvement, including updating guidelines, improving health facilities and lab infrastructure, and training health care workers.

ICAP is also providing technical assistance to strengthen national health information systems, integrated monitoring and evaluation, and data dissemination and use in order to improve access to HIV services.
