During 2016-2020, WDF has supported the first phase of national response to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Mozambique, focusing primarily on diabetes and hypertension (WDF12-745). The project has recently come to an end with notable results and has indeed established an enhanced response to diabetes and hypertension at primary care level in Mozambique.
WDF20-1794 aims to ensure that the results obtained during the first phase of the national response are not eroded because of the current COVID-19 emergency situation. Thus, the project aims to strengthen NCD services in 22 health centres to ensure continuity of services, as well as conduct awareness activities at community level to inform the public of the NCDs and COVID-19 in support of the national COVID-19 response.
Funding of the project was obtained through Novo Nordisk Foundation's open call ‘COVID-19: Preparedness, Prevention, Response and Recovery’.
The project will serve as a bridging-grant to ensure continuity of project activities, as well as implementation of new COVID-19 component. During this bridging period, the main activities include:
