Overview :

 

UNDP’s democratic governance practice focuses on fostering inclusive participation, strengthening responsive governing institutions, and promoting democratic principles. UNDP’s commitment to HIV and other major health challenges is based on the principles that health is both a driver and outcome of development and that actions across a wide range of development sectors have a significant impact on health outcomes. UNDP focuses on addressing the social, economic and environmental determinants of health, which are primarily responsible for health inequalities.

The project intends to strengthen the capacity of the Government National AIDS Council in coordination and communication among stakeholders in order to increase efforts to eliminate the epidemic. This is in line with the Political Declaration adopted by the UN High Level Meeting on HIV and AIDS held in 2011, where the Heads of State agreed “to develop additional measures, where necessary, to strengthen national, regional and global coordination and monitoring mechanisms of HIV and AIDS responses through inclusive and transparent processes with the full involvement of Member States and other relevant stakeholders, with the support of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS”.

The project has 4 specific outputs:

Output 1: The capacity of National AIDS Council at national level, and in selected provinces and districts improved to coordinate planning, implementation and monitoring of the HIV programmes.

Output 2: The HIV law is reviewed, disseminated and implemented.

Output 3: The grant management model is revised.

Output 4: The revised grant management model is adopted and implemented by the Government.

 

In Mozambique, HIV and AIDS constitutes a major challenge for the development of the country. The prevalence of HIV among Mozambican adults aged 15-49 is 11.5% (2009 AIDS Indicator Survey). Gaza Province has the highest prevalence rate among adults (25.1%) and Niassa has the lower (3.7%). The INSIDA report also revealed that HIV prevalence is higher in urban areas than in rural areas.

In terms of gender, the INSIDA report reveals an increase in the feminization of HIV with the rate of infection among women higher comparing to men (13.1% and 9.2%, respectively). In Sofala, the prevalence among young women is almost five times higher than men of similar age, and in Gaza it is almost six times higher. Gender inequalities are the basis of both violence against women and increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. Unequal power relationships play a role by influencing risky sexual behaviors and help perpetuate violence against women and girls. In Mozambique also, the HIV prevalence rates are higher in the urban áreas (15.9%) in relation to rural areas (9.2%).

The fight against HIV and AIDS will continue to be a priority for the Government of Mozambique, and it is reflected in the 5 year government plan for the period of 2015-2020. The new HIV National Strategic Plan recently approved (NSP- IV) for the period of 2016-2020 and the new the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2016-2020, both reflect the HIV specific country concerns.

From the Government the Ministry of Health is a key support partner and from the UN the UNAIDS and the WHO. Other stakeholders are also relevant as the NSP IV builds on Adolescents and Youth, prevention treatment, Human Rights and Gender Based Violence.

Recently, in June 2016, in the context of HIV High Level Meeting a new HIV Political Declaration was adopted with new HIV targets. This increases the relevance and urgence of development a national country M&E Plan for the NSP that can respond and interact with the global targets and indicators.
