USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project | Mozambique

Overview

URC assisted the Ministry of Women and Social Action to communicate service standards for orphans and vulnerable children to implementers and communities. We are working with service providers to improve their adherence to the standards and the wellbeing of children and families served.

URC supported the Government and other partners to develop and implement quality standards for home-based care for persons living with HIV. We are also supporting community-level activities to improve postnatal PMTCT care for HIV-infected mothers and their infants and maximize HIV-free survival of infants. Ensuring care is provided in line with 2010 WHO PMTCT guidelines reduces infant mortality and HIV transmission to exposed infants.
