MSH works in Angola to improve access to pharmaceuticals and health services. Through the Systems for Improving Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program, funded by USAID, MSH collaborates with the Angolan Ministry of Health and the country's provinces to strengthen pharmaceutical governance, supply chain management, data use, and services.
SIAPS has helped Angola provide 4 million antimalarial treatments per year, and antiretroviral treatment for more than 80,000 patients with HIV.
Through the USAID-funded Building Local Capacity for Delivery of HIV Services in Southern Africa Project (BLC), MSH supported local community service organizations and provincial governments to deliver HIV prevention services that promote healthy behaviors among families. Between 2013 and 2014, the project reached more than 80,000 people with HIV and gender-based violence prevention messaging.
MSH also works with partners to ensure the availability of essential health services, and to reduce HIV transmission among sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender persons.
