MSH is currently implementing the TB CARE I project in Mozambique. TB CARE I is a five-year USAID/PEPFAR-funded program led by the Dutch NGO KNCV TB Foundation. It aims to save lives and control the spread of TB, TB/HIV and drug resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB). The project aims to provide technical assistance to the Mozambique National Tuberculosis Control Program (NTCP) and the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), contributing to the national, global and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) targets for TB.
The scope of work is to assist NTCP and NMCP:
• To provide universal and early case detection
• To provide universal access to DST for suspected cases and treatment to all those with MDR TB cases
• To increase early case detection, expand intensified case finding, enhance airborne infection control efforts and expand access to and integrate treatment of TB and HIV in co-infected individuals
• To fully contribute to health system strengthening as it relates to TB, particularly for improving political commitment, strengthening human resources, enhancing health information and surveillance systems, infection control, and engaging all care providers.
• To improve diagnosis and treatment of malaria.
The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceutical Products and Services (SIAPS) program, which is funded by USAID, works with partners in the pharmaceutical sector and in priority health programs in Mozambique. The program aims to improve services so that pharmaceutical products are available at service delivery points, prescribed and dispensed appropriately, used correctly by patients, and monitored for safety and efficacy. Activities include supporting the Ministry of Health's Pharmacy Department in fully implementing a computerized registration system to improve the efficiency, accountability and transparency of the country's national drug registration process, and supporting the revision of the country's national essential medicines list to further streamline that process.
