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).
