About N'weti

N’weti was established in 2008 and is a nongovernmental organization. Since its inception, N’weti has undergone major transformations in programming, policy advocacy, visibility and institutional growth. N’weti started with a focus on social and behavioural change communication (SBCC) at national level. Gradually, the organization developed a holistic socio-ecological model that recognized the complexity of local problems and the need for multi-level interventions (individual/ community/local/national), adapted from McLeroy et al. (1988), and that the most effective approaches combine efforts at all levels. The socio-ecological model remains a relevant, powerful and evidence-based international reference informing all programs and strategic activities implemented by N’weti.

N’weti’s Strategic Plan (SP) for the period 2021-2025 guides the organization’s response to health and development needs in Mozambique. Through this SP, N’weti contributes to the country’s accelerated progress towards its commitment to ensure equitable and universal access to health for all citizens.


N’weti’s mission is to contribute to improving the health status of Mozambicans through interventions that guarantee social and behavioral changes at the individual, community and structural levels, and that promote access to universal, equitable and quality public health services, as well as appropriate public policies.


N’weti’s vision is that individuals and communities in Mozambique adopt healthy behaviors and have access to universal, equitable, and quality public health services.

The SP 2021-2025 has the following two objectives:

1) to contribute to the improvement of the health status of Mozambicans through the promotion of healthy behaviours, provision of health services, strengthening community-based health systems, encouraging participatory monitoring and influencing public policies; and 

2) contribute to the improvement of governance, citizen engagement and respect for human rights. N’weti’s SP 2021-2025 identifies four different priority Strategic Approaches. Each approach includes several high impact practices (HIPs) and evidence- based interventions (EBIs).
