Mozambique’s government prioritizes actions to expand access to quality health and nutrition services — including sexual and reproductive health (SRH) — in districts with the worst health outcomes.

The GFF supports programs to make contraceptives and SRH education available to adolescent girls and boys in secondary schools. In addition, the GFF is supporting the development of a new SRH package for secondary and technical schools. Other priorities include increasing health spending and implementing reforms to improve service quality through quality-of-care scorecards and performance-based funding to frontline health facilities and district hospitals.

Strong focus is also placed on scaling up the community health worker program and strengthening primary health care, while outsourcing last-mile distribution of drugs to the private sector.
