Date of commitment: 
September 2010
Millennium Development Goal: 


In 2010 Mozambique committed to increase the percentage of children immunized aged under 1, from 69 to 90 percent by 2012 and to increase the number of HIV+ children receiving ARTs from 11, 900 to 31,000 by 2012. Mozambique also pledged to increase contraceptive prevalence from 24 to 34 % by 2015 and will increase institutional deliveries from a level of 49% to 66% by 2015. Mozambique also committed to establish a centre for the treatment of obstetric fistula in each province by 2015.
At the 2012 London Family Planning Summit Mozambique committed to continuing to provide free integrated sexual reproductive health services and commodities in all health facilities, and to cover 5% (2012), 10% (2015) and 15% (2020) of contraceptives needs. Family planning information and services for the youth will be revitalized. Access to long acting and permanent methods will be increased from about 1% to 5% of women by 2015. Post-partum and post-abortion counseling on family planning and contraception will be expanded by training at least 500 health providers throughout the country by 2015. A public-private partnership to strengthen the distribution of contraceptives will increase the number of health facilities with at least three contraceptive methods from one-third to 50% by 2015.
