Mozambique

Mozambique is a Southeast African country with a population of 26 million and a life expectancy at birth of 53 years (males) and 55 years (females). Though the country has made significant progress since the end of the civil war in 1992, major challenges remain, with only approximately half the population able to access the health facility network in 2014 and high rates of maternal mortality and of deaths due to malaria, HIV, tuberculosis and NCDs. Mozambique joined IHP+ (now UHC2030) in 2007. The current Health Sector Strategic Plan 2014-2019 emphasizes a “reform and decentralization agenda” with particular attention paid to women, young people, and the elderly. The UHC Partnership supports the development of a National Health Policy to guide UHC and primary health care interventions, with a particular focus on strengthening the health financing system by drawing information from improved national health accounts.
