Systematically Coordinating VMMC Demand and Supply in Mozambique

This case study illustrates how a coordinated approach between USAID’s service delivery and demand creation partners helped the Ministry of Health (MOH) improve the voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) landscape in two provinces in Mozambique – Manica and Tete. Concerted coordination, joint planning and improved use of data resulted in a significant increase in VMMC uptake among the priority age group of 15–29-year-old males who were previously not accessing services. The collaborative process began in 2015 and resulted in a nearly five-fold increase in the number of adolescents and men accessing VMMC services in fiscal year 2017, with the proportion of clients in the priority age group increasing from 48 to 58 percent during the same period.
