Call for Proposals: Strengthening the health system in Mozambique so that no adolescent will be left behind

Concurso público: Fortalecer o Sistema de Saúde de Moçambique para que nenhum adolescente fique para trás


The Government of Flanders has a long-standing relationship with the Government of Mozambique. The Country Strategy Paper III (CSP III) 2016-2020, which is the product of a joint consultation process between the two Governments, states as its common mission “to promote the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of health for the entire Mozambican population in general, and of its adolescent population more specifically, as part of a strategy to reduce absolute poverty in the country.”

O Governo da Flandres e de Moçambique cooperam estreitamente desde o ano de 2002. O Documento de Estratégia para o Pais (DEP) 2016-2020 entre o Governo da Flandres e o Governo de Moçambique estabelece a missão comum de “reforçar e promover o direito fundamental de acesso ao mais elevado padrão de saúde para toda a população de Moçambique, em geral, e mais especificamente para a sua população adolescente, como parte de uma estratégia de redução da pobreza absoluta no Pais”.
