Our projects (Mozambique)
This study seeks to examine the community dialogues approach as a method of improving knowledge and practices for the prevention and control of schistosomiasis – one of the most devastating of the NTDs – at the community level.
RAcE: Strengthening and improving a national ICCM programme
The Rapid Access Expansion 2015 project, or RAcE 2015, is to improve access to and the quality of community-level management of childhood malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea in Mozambique, known as integrated community case management (ICCM). This 3-year (2013-2015) project is jointly implemented by Save the Children
and Malaria Consortium.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate that coverage of government-led integrated community case management programmes can be increased to
cover up to 30 percent of the districts, primarily resulting in more children with diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria accessing appropriate care.
Malaria Prevention and Control
This project aims to support the Mozambique government to reduce malaria throughout the country by scaling up prevention and control efforts with community involvement.
Previous projects in Mozambique included a DFID-funded initiative, LLIN Distribution for Scale-up,
which aimed to help the Mozambican Ministry of Health analyse and prepare a national distribution system for long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) that would be suitable for rapid scale up in preparation of universal coverage campaigns. The Sustainable LLIN delivery systems project
, completed in 2010, aimed to prevent malaria by distributing long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and stimulating the private sector market for nets. Malaria Consortium's Clover programme
, now completed, aimed to reduce the burden of malaria among the poor and increase access to and quality of communicable disease interventions through strengthened health systems in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia.
