The proposed three-year initiative aims to contribute to reduce the mortality due to major non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Mozambique by ensuring access to quality health care (General Objective/Long Term Impact in line with OSS 3). The Specific Objective aims to improve access to services for prevention and treatment of major non-communicable diseases (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cervical cancer) of the population in the coverage area of five health units in the provinces of Cabo Delgado and Manica, with a focus on accessibility by persons with disabilities (OSS 3 / Target 3.8). Contrary to popular opinion, available WHO data show that almost 80% of deaths from non-communicable diseases occur in low- and middle-income countries, where NCDs disproportionately affect the poorest, most vulnerable and discriminated against groups, including people with disabilities. Following a survey conducted during the feasibility study, it was decided to work in particular on the prevention and treatment of hypertension, diabetes mellitus and cervical cancer, due to the significant impact of these diseases in terms of premature death and disability. The main needs that impede an adequate control of NCDs in Mozambique are: the difficulties of access to CS by the population and in particular by people with disabilities (architectural, economic and socio-cultural barriers); the lack of qualified health personnel and resources for early diagnosis, treatment and surveillance; the lack of information among the population on preventive behaviours to be adopted (tendency to increase the adoption of risk behaviours in younger age groups); the lack of means/equipment for early diagnosis, treatment and surveillance. The proposed initiative intends to act on these priority needs, working in close collaboration with the Mozambican Ministry of Health (MISAU) and the Provincial Directorates of Health (DPS) of Manica and Cabo Delgado, to ensure the technical and financial sustainability of the initiative. At the same time, local non-governmental partners (Forum of Mozambican Associations of Persons with Disabilities - FAMOD) and Italian partners (PIN S.C.R.L. Servizi Didattici e Scientifici per l'Università di Firenze - ARCO-PIN; E-35 Fondazione per la Progettazione Internazionale; Fondazione Aurora) will be involved to guarantee the participation of beneficiaries in the action and adequate technical support. The initiative falls within the priorities of the MISAU strategic plan that includes the objective of "reducing the progressive trend of non-communicable diseases" in the country (PESS 2014-2019). The direct beneficiaries of the action will be: the population aged 15 years and over, which represents 53.3% of the total geographical area of coverage of the five primary health care services (Centros de Saúde - CS) involved in the project, the health personnel and managers of the health centres involved, the communities in general (direct and indirect beneficiaries). In order to achieve the specific objective set, contributing to the long-term impact, the following expected results are expected: Identified the needs of communities and health services in the project areas regarding accessibility to services for prevention and treatment of non-communicable diseases (SDG 3 / Target 3. 8); Ensured early identification and treatment of non-communicable diseases in the project areas (SDG 3 / Target 3.8); Established and implemented a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder operational pathway to facilitate access of people with disabilities to NCD treatment services (SDG 3 / Target 3.8). read more close
