Malaria Consortium began working in Mozambique in 2005, supporting the development of distribution systems for long lasting insecticidal nets in the country.
Our work grew from there to focus on public health communications that sought to increase malaria awareness and preventive behaviours, particularly among school children and teachers. Using malaria as an entry point, we expanded into integrated community health projects that focused on diagnosing and
treating the most common childhood illnesses – mainly malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea. Throughout, we have consistently strived to integrate our work into government-led health programmes and ensure sustainability. Malaria Consortium Mozambique has 6 operating offices, located in Maputo (Head Office), Inhambane, Sofala, Manica, Nampula and Niassa, with allocated projects.
