Health and Wellbeing

Health is an essential condition for the development of individuals, communities and the country as a whole, which is why it is one of ADPP’s areas of intervention in which it works closely with the Government of Mozambique.

ADPP’s health projects and activities are community based, as we believe that by giving community members more control over their health, teaching them how to prevent common illnesses, and how to get support from the public health system when needed, we can ensure prevention of, and access to, treatment of diseases such as HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis and Malaria.

ADPP has long and solid experience in developing local approaches to community health and HIV/AIDS prevention and care and is proud to have one of the largest networks of staff and volunteers working in the field, reaching annually over 1,400,000 Mozambicans with health messages.

In line with SDG3 to provide good health and wellbeing, ADPP has invested in reducing child mortality, improving maternal health and combating HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, Malaria and other preventable diseases in Mozambique, which contribute to mortality rates. ADPP has specialized in working on the control and prevention of communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, especially among young children and girls. These diseases present major challenges in the life of the Mozambican population in terms of both their health and in socio-economic impact.

For ADPP, 2018 was a year of many challenges, but also many successes in working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups. Health trends and key outcomes in the area of health and wellbeing are illustrated in the pages that follow.
