In Mozambique, ICAP supports a concerted government effort spanning all levels of the health system to address the dual health threats of HIV and tuberculosis (TB). Service provision, continuous quality improvement, and development of health facility and laboratory infrastructure form the core of these efforts, with innovative, targeted approaches driving progress in human resources for health, optimized antiretroviral (ARV) regimens, and utilization of new technology to improve patient retention in care.
