Our Countries

We love this #vintage ad from @FPACharity advocating getting educated on #familyplanning ! It is as important today as it has ever been. #WheresTheFP #TBT

Pig intestines used as condoms?!? See this and more of History's Worst Contraceptives here: https://t.co/JZHqdN401r #WherestheFP #TBT

The face of vulnerability is adolescent girls & key populations. We need to think about #SDGs & what it means to live w full dignity. Prevention implies access to information, timely respectful services & understanding we are in a time of crisis. @UNFPA

We love the implant & all other forms of #contraception allowing millions to plan & space #pregnancies. How #empowering is that?! #WheresTheFP

Our wisdom: increasing access to #familyplanning helps women go further in their education, work & life! #WheresTheFP

A 16-year-old girl living with HIV asked for a hug. This is how people responded.


Leaving no one behind means placing women at the center of the decision-making spaces in the HIV response. https://t.co/kNhzGjBbrp #AIDS2018 @AIDS_Conference

Breaking out of our echo chambers: cutting through the noise with creative storytelling about HIV. https://t.co/BiKfwjh98k. #AIDS2018

Human rights are far more than just inspiring words. They are the foundations of our progress, indispensable for peace and sustainable development. https://t.co/a1HgGD42zS via @antonioguterres

Mozambique has in many ways transformed since the end of a civil war in 1992.  Its economy in particular has improved, yet its health system still lags.  Maternal mortality rates are high, and 12 percent of adults are HIV-positive. Efforts to mitigate the epidemic’s impact on women in particular are a national priority, as are improving maternal health outcomes.  It is within this context that EngenderHealth’s work in Mozambique included:

Involving Men As Partners® (MAP)
In 2008, with funding from the President ‘s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief, EngenderHealth launched MAP in Mozambique.

Making Motherhood Safer

In Mozambique, EngenderHealth partnered with UNFPA to improve services for women with obstetric fistula, which results from obstructed labor and lack of appropriate maternal health care. EngenderHealth and UNFPA surveyed the country to document existing fistula repair services, and made recommendations to guide appropriate interventions for tackling obstetric fistula nationwide.
