This funding towards health provided by the Global Fund to the Government of Mozambique will serve as an essential inflow of resources to accelerate joint efforts to combat HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in Mozambique and part of the value will be channeled to civil society organizations, such as the Fundação para o Desenvolvimento da Comunidade (FDC), Centro de Colaboração em Saúde (CCS), World Vision and others.

The United States is aware, through our own work under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief  (PEPFAR) and the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), that civil society and religious organizations often enjoy greater credibility and reach in the communities.
