Community-led Health and Wellbeing Project in partnership with the Diocese of Niassa in Mozambique since 2011.

This project is funded through the Australian Government’s Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) as well as from donations from Anglicans in Australia.

The goal of this project is that communities will see fewer children and adults dying, more people knowing their HIV status, more people speaking openly about HIV, and fewer children malnourished. The project is typical of our strengths-based approach to sustainable development in that communities will see that they brought about these changes by applying basic health messages.

This report presents the findings of an evaluation of the first two years of our support to Phase 2 of the project (July 2014 to June 2016).

The Community-led Health and Wellbeing Project has achieved impressive results despite the challenges of working in some very remote and under developed areas of Northern Mozambique. The need for health services in Mozambique
remains high, with 14% of Mozambican children dying before they reach 5 years of age and 11% of Mozambicans between the ages of 15-19 living with HIV.

More than 2000 volunteer activists are being supported to bring about discernible change in the health and wellbeing of 64 communities across the province of Nampula and in one district of Cabo Delgado.
