This NOFO will support innovative interventions that advance a human rights-based approach to health equity in the provision of HIV/AIDS services, while reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination at community and health facility levels. This NOFO will help to put communities at the center of the HIV response by improving HIV-affected populations´ legal and health literacy and promoting systematic community-led monitoring (CLM) of HIV services supported by PEPFAR in Mozambique.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

As Mozambique continues to progress towards the 2030 HIV epidemic control goals of the UNAIDS, the country will need to increase focus on interventions that maximize equitable access to comprehensive, person-centered HIV services. This requires robust programs and community led responses that address social, cultural, and legal barriers that hamper equal access to health services for all people living with and affected by HIV, while simultaneously reducing healthcare system-related barriers that affect the provision of HIV services to the populations in-need. Concurrently, this demands strategic, multilayered interventions that respond to the complex societal dynamics that lead to HIV-related stigma and discrimination that affect people living with HIV (PLHIV) and vulnerable populations, including adolescent girls and young women, children, pregnant women, sex workers, people who inject drugs (PWID), transgender people, incarcerated populations, and men who have sex with men. This NOFO will support innovative interventions that advance a human rights-based approach to health equity in the provision of HIV/AIDS services, while reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination at community and health facility levels. This NOFO will help to put communities at the center of the HIV response by improving HIV-affected populations´ legal and health literacy and promoting systematic community-led monitoring (CLM) of HIV services supported by PEPHAR in Mozambique.
