AIDSFree Activities in Mozambique

  • VMMC Service Delivery in Mozambique: In Mozambique, AIDSFree is scaling up quality VMMC services in Tete & Manica Provinces. Led by AIDSFree partner, Jhpiego, the project is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health to improve the overall quality of VMMC services by minimizing interruptions in availability, improving safety, and working with stakeholders to create demand.
  • VMMC Online Training Hub: Competency of health care workers is a critical requirement for safe, efficient, and high-quality VMMC service delivery. AIDSFree has developed an online learning management system to improve training accountability and outcomes for VMMC providers. This system will complement the hands-on practical training that providers receive. Benefits of this novel training platform include: (1) The VMMC Online Training Hub will standardize curriculum content and will ensure consistent delivery. (2) The system will create a trainee database to track providers’ training dates, time since course completion, competency scores, and strengths and weaknesses. (3) The system will facilitate follow-up with trainees to introduce new/updated information, certify ongoing competencies, remediate weaknesses, and track post-training service delivery volumes.
