Building Strong Communities

Mozambique, weakened by a 15-year civil war that ended in 1992, was especially hard-hit by the HIV and AIDS epidemic: approximately 11 percent of the country’s population has HIV.

Abt Associates greatly expanded the number of people receiving and continuing to receive HIV treatment in Mozambique. We also are protecting people from malaria and helping them to plan for and adapt to climate change at the local level.

The percent increase in the number of people receiving HIV testing and care--from 23,000 to more than 230,000--thanks in part to Abt’s capacity building.
