Solutions for Sustainability

In collaboration with the Columbia University Earth Institute and the National Institute of Health (INS) , ICAP conducted a research study to better understand the response of Mozambique’s health care system to climate change and disasters.

Through key informant interviews, focus group discussions, and an electronic questionnaire with various stakeholders, ICAP and INS evaluated the attitudes toward disaster-response health policies on communities in Mozambique, determined the attitudes toward communication strategies pre- and post- climate disaster, identified areas for improvement at policy, community, and facility/structural levels and determined if lessons learned from the devastating 2019 cyclone season informed the response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
