N’weti implements a comprehensive package of services to support orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in Mozambique, as part of the Community HIV Activity in Zambézia, also known as the N’weti-Zambézia program (2019-2024), funded by USAID/PEPFAR. The N’weti-Zambézia program aims to reduce the risk of HIV transmission and improve health outcomes of people and families affected by HIV in Zambézia and Gaza Provinces of Mozambique, by increasing coverage of high impact, evidence-based community HIV services.
Through the program, N’weti is implementing OVC interventions to ensure that the most vulnerable children and adolescents are engaged, prioritized, supported, and sustained in appropriate health and social services. N’weti currently implements the OVC program component in 17 districts of Zambézia Province.
This results brief describes the achievements of the program in reaching OVC beneficiaries, from May 2020 to September 2022, with the comprehensive package of services to ensure that OVC utilizes services to enhance the health status and well-being of OVC.
