COVID-19 has spread rapidly to nearly every corner of the world. In Mozambique, the Government planned and has been delivering an urgent response to back health systems and protect at-risk populations. Even with such a response, COVID-19 is disrupting the functioning of health services and threatens to undo a part of progress made in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, UNDP has aligned with the efforts of the Government of Mozambique to protect the lives and the livelihoods of its citizens, joining in on the wider United Nations response plan. As part of the ONE UN Health Plan and the MoH Emergency Response Plan, and through the partnership with the the Government, UNDP is strengthening laboratory capacity for decentralized COVID19 testing, ensuring adequate health infrastructure, including through rehabilitation and installation of prefabricated modules. This intervention increases the diagnostic efficiency at sub-national level, aiming at timely providing the citizens with their right to access quality services of treatment and care. Recently in partnership also with other donors, other project is starting that aims to achieve a lasting improvement in access to and quality of health services through rehabilitation and construction of selected health facilities. The project will contribute to national COVID-19 preparedness and response focusing the on the requirements for hospitalization of patients with COVID-19, including the preparation of the health facilities for installation of medical gases piped system. The immediate result of the project will be a boosted hospital emergency capacity for inflows of COVID-19 patients at selected locations, with particular attention to patients with severe cases requiring hospitalization supported by oxygen supply.
