Mozambique National Strategic HIV and AIDS Response Plan 2010 – 2014

This document reflects a broad consensus, at several levels, on strategic approaches which will guide the response to HIV and AIDS in the 2010 to 2014 period. Its philosophy endorses a results]based approach, orientated by principles such as those of human rights, multisectoralism, systems strengthening, the economy of resources, and respect for socio]cultural dynamics which influence the behavior of Mozambican citizens.

Mozambique National Strategic Plan Part II 2005 - 2009

The situation analysis above calls for vigorous measures in order to attain the indicators depicted therein. It is within that perspective that the objectives outlined below have been formulated. All the objectives are formulated with a 5-year timeline from the date of commencement of implementation of the Plan. However, the evolution of the most important objectives spans a period of 10 years. In many cases, the goals to be achieved by the end of the first or of the third year of implementation of the Plan are also outlined.

Mozambique National Strategic Plan Part I - 2004

The first AIDS case in Mozambique was diagnosed in 1986. It was a foreign citizen who was already infected when he entered the Country.


Already in 1985, a World Health Organisation (WHO) Expert Committee meeting in Bangui, had made a definition of a clinical case of AIDS in Africa. From then on, WHO recommended that member countries set up National AIDS Committees. It is within this framework that, in August of 1986, the first body to spearhead the fight against AIDS was established in Mozambique, called National AIDS Commission (CNCS). This Commission was headquartered at the National Health Institute (INS).

Mozambique Strategic Plan for the Combat Against HIV/AIDS: Operationalisation 2005 - 2009

The "Objectives and Strategies" chapter establishes the areas of focus deemed relevant in the combat against HIV/AIDS and the course that the fight will take in each one of these areas. The chapter also provides practical guidelines for the provision of support to initiatives and programmes of action to be undertaken at the level of the community, the workplace, associations, the civil society organisations, among others.

The aim is to ensure as broad a participation in HIV/AIDS combat activities as possible because it is only through concerted effort of all population segments that we will be able to contain the rapid progression of the disease and significantly reduce the rates of incidence.

Mozambique UNGASS Country Report - December 2007

The goal of the national HIV response in Mozambique is to reduce HIV infection. As the highest rates of new infections occur in young adults, the country has committed to achieving major reductions in HIVrevalence among young people.


At older ages, changes in HIV prevalence are slow to reflect changes in the rate of new infections (HIV incidence) because the average duration of infection is long. Furthermore, declines in HIV prevalence can reflect saturation of infection among those individuals who are most vulnerable and rising mortality rather than behaviour change. At young ages, trends in HIV prevalence are a better indication of recent trends in HIV incidence and risk behaviour. Thus, reductions in HIV incidence associated with genuine behaviour change should first become detectable in HIV prevalence figures for 15–19-year-olds (Source: UNGASS Guidelines, 2007)
