Mozambique stands at a crossroads in its national development trajectory. The quality of leadership during the next five years will determine whether the country’s citizens are able to participate broadly in emerging economic opportunities and a more open political order that prioritizes human development and achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Any drift toward an alternative path that leads to entrenchment of a political elite dedicated to sustaining their own power to serve as gatekeepers to the nation’s wealth should be mitigated through diplomacy and development resources.

Gender-based Violence (GBV) is a global pandemic that is inflicted upon men, women and children. However, women and girls are the most at risk and most affected by GBV. Gender-based violence undermines the safety, dignity, health, and human rights of the millions of individuals who experience it, and the public health, economic well-being, and security of nations. The Gender-based Violence Initiative (GBVI) in Mozambique is part of the United States President’s Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and aims to expand and improve coordination and effectiveness of GBV prevention efforts; improve the policy implementation in response to GBV and improve the availability and quality of GBV services in Mozambique.
