Maputo-province and Maputo-city are among the highest HIV/TB burden regions in Mozambique with HIV prevalence in adults around 23 percent and 17 percent, respectively. Using the approach taken to tackle HIV as a model, ADPP Mozambique has been implementing two community-based projects in Maputo province, aiming to protect people living with HIV from TB and avoidable mortality.
Recently Humana People to People took part at the Lung Conference in Mexico and made some presentations covering what we are doing in addressing Tuberculosis in India and Mozambique.
Building on the post-Lung Conference momentum an article was prepared and published in one of the international development online website.
