MP Bourgeois and President Nyusi approve 3rd Country Strategy Mozambique

1059
On 21 April, Minister-president Geert Bourgeois met the President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, in Brussels. On their agenda was the approval of the third country strategy for development cooperation in Mozambique. With this new strategy Flanders commits itself to an annual grant of 5 million euro for health care in Mozambique for the period 2016 – 2020. Both Governments make the explicit choice to focus these resources on adolescents, with an emphasis on adolescent girls (10-19 years). Mozambican teenage girls are very vulnerable in terms of sexual and reproductive health. They have a high risk of catching hiv-infection and of maternal mortality.

The Government of Flanders supports projects in Mozambique aimed at the creation of better health systems, the motivation of technical staff in the Tete province, and innovation in sexual and reproductive health and training of nutritionists. We thank all our partners for their efforts, patience, creativity, coordination and cooperation!
