Mozambique

Country Situation

Adult HIV prevalence (ages 15-49) in Mozambique, estimated at 11.5% in 2009, has been stable over the past five years[1], though still remains high. The 2009 estimated HIV prevalence among pregnant women, 10.4%, is comparable to the general adult population. The 2010 maternal mortality rate estimate is high (490/100,000 live births) and it is estimated that 98,300 pregnant women were living with HIV in 2011 and 130,000 children were living with HIV as of 2009.

PMTCT programme coverage in Mozambique is improving. Approximately 86% of ANC facilities offer PMTCT services[8], and HIV testing among pregnant women increased from 12% in 2005 to 87% in 2010[9]. In 2011, 51% of pregnant women living with HIV (PWLHIV) received more efficacious ARVs for PMTCT—up from 38% in 2009[3]. In 2010, 42% of children born to PWLHIV received ARVs for PMTCT, and only 34% of infants born to PWLHIV were tested for HIV within 2 months of birth[9].

Mozambique has developed a national scale up plan towards elimination of mother to child transmission of HIV (2010- 2015) and has adopted WHO Option B+ regimen for prophylaxis[10].

Mocambique_Diagnostico Precoce infantil do HIV_2009.

This progress report (available in English and Portuguese) on the Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) program is derived from data collected on HIV exposed infants up to 18 months of age.  Information is collected through the test requisition form (FSR) and DNA PCR Results from the 4 laboratory databases in Mozambique.  This report represents over 102,000 children tested from January 2009 to December 2011.

Country Milestones

  • In Progress

    Countries have conducted an expenditure analysis, harmonized expenditure categories as needed, identified financing gaps in their action plans and have develped and begun to implement a strategy increasing financial assistance from domestic and international sources to support the national EMTCT plan.

    National EMTCT plans are costed.

    National guidelines on PMTCT and infant feeding in line with WHO 2010 recommended guidelines on ARVs for PMTCT.

    National annual EMTCT progress report includes community (civil society) analysis of progress and feedback from civil society is reflected in revisions to national EMTCT operational plans. Community engagement milestone has been revised and will be reported in June 2013.

    Baselines for essential commodity needs for EMTCT have been established.

    Relevant support and management capacity has been increased (IATT focal points in place).

    Policy review has been conducted to dentralize and task shift essential HIV activities to the primary care and community levels.

    Country has reported on estimated number of new HIV infections among children averted and number of mothers kept alive.

    Estimated number of new pediatric infections reduced by 50% from 2009 levels in at least 10 priority countries.

    Relevant targets met in at least 50% of districts in the country.

    Every district reports regular supplies of drugs and commodities without stock outs.
