Satisfaction with outpatient health care services in Manica Province, Mozambique. (1/362)

The objective of the study was to describe ambulatory health care services, determine the level of client satisfaction, and identify obstacles to care in a rural area of Mozambique. Exit surveys at 34 health clinics in Manica Province were completed on a sample of 879 adults representing between 1% and 2% of the average monthly visit totals at each clinic. Eighty-three per cent of interviewees were women. Just over half of the visits were for paediatric patients. Men were more likely to be at the clinic for their own health care needs than women (81% vs. 40%, p < 0.001). Of patients seen for acute illness, 45% were examined, 22% received preventive education, and 23% received prognostic information. Overall, 55% of interviewees believed that the service they received was good or very good, 32% rated it as fair, and 13% as poor. Satisfaction was positively associated with increased training level of the provider (p < 0.005), and shorter waiting times (p < 0.001). The most common complaints about the clinic visits were lack of adequate transportation, long waiting times, lack of physical examinations, and failure to receive prescribed medications. These findings suggest that the majority of Mozambicans interviewed are moderately satisfied with the available outpatient services in Manica. Provider training, provider availability and distribution of medicines were areas identified by respondents as needing improvement.  (+info)

How and why public sector doctors engage in private practice in Portuguese-speaking African countries. (2/362)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the type of private practice supplementary income-generating activities of public sector doctors in the Portuguese-speaking African countries, and also to discover the motivations and the reasons why doctors have not made a complete move out of public service. DESIGN: Cross-sectional qualitative survey. SUBJECTS: In 1996, 28 Angolan doctors, 26 from Guinea-Bissau, 11 from Mozambique and three from S Tome and Principe answered a self-administered questionnaire. RESULTS: All doctors, except one unemployed, were government employees. Forty-three of the 68 doctors that answered the questionnaire reported an income-generating activity other than the one reported as principal. Of all the activities mentioned, the ones of major economic importance were: public sector medical care, private medical care, commercial activities, agricultural activities and university teaching. The two outstanding reasons why they engage in their various side-activities are 'to meet the cost of living' and 'to support the extended family'. Public sector salaries are supplemented by private practice. Interviewees estimated the time a family could survive on their public sector salary at seven days (median value). The public sector salary still provides most of the interviewees income (median 55%) for the rural doctors, but has become marginal for those in the urban areas (median 10%). For the latter, private practice has become of paramount importance (median 65%). For 26 respondents, the median equivalent of one month's public sector salary could be generated by seven hours of private practice. Nevertheless, being a civil servant was important in terms of job security, and credibility as a doctor. The social contacts and public service gave access to power centres and resources, through which other coping strategies could be developed. The expectations regarding the professional future and regarding the health systems future were related mostly to health personnel issues. CONCLUSION: The variable response rate per question reflects some resistance to discuss some of the issues, particularly those related to income. Nevertheless, these studies may provide an indication of what is happening in professional medical circles in response to the inability of the public sector to sustain a credible system of health care delivery. There can be no doubt that for these doctors the notion of a doctor as a full-time civil-servant is a thing of the past. Switching between public and private is now a fact of life.  (+info)

A lysosomal storage disease induced by Ipomoea carnea in goats in Mozambique. (3/362)

A novel plant-induced lysosomal storage disease was observed in goats from a village in Mozambique. Affected animals were ataxic, with head tremors and nystagmus. Because of a lack of suitable feed, the animals consumed an exotic hedge plant growing in the village that was identified as Ipomoea carnea (shrubby morning glory, Convolvulaceae). The toxicosis was reproduced by feeding I. carnea plant material to goats. In acute cases, histologic changes in the brain and spinal cord comprised widespread cytoplasmic vacuolation of neurons and glial cells in association with axonal spheroid formation. Ultrastructurally, cytoplasmic storage vacuoles in neurons were membrane bound and consistent with lysosomes. Cytoplasmic vacuolation was also found in neurons in the submucosal and mesenteric plexuses in the small intestine, in renal tubular epithelial cells, and in macrophage-phagocytic cells in the spleen and lymph nodes in acute cases. Residual alterations in the brain in chronic cases revealed predominantly cerebellar lesions characterized by loss of Purkinje neurons and gliosis of the Purkinje cell layer. Analysis of I. carnea plant material by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry established the presence of the mannosidase inhibitor swainsonine and 2 glycosidase inhibitors, calystegine B2 and calystegine C1, consistent with a plant-induced alpha-mannosidosis in the goats. The described storage disorder is analogous to the lysosomal storage diseases induced by ingestion of locoweeds (Astragalus and Oxytropis) and poison peas (Swainsona).  (+info)

Seroprevalence of human cysticercosis in Maputo, Mozambique. (4/362)

We carried out a serosurvey for cysticercosis among people visiting the Central Hospital of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, between January and June 1993. A standardized questionnaire was designed to obtain information on demographic, socioeconomic, environmental, and behavioral characteristics related to the transmission of the infection. Four hundred eighty-nine individuals were tested for anti-cysticercosis antibodies: 222 blood donors and patients from the Department of Orthopedics, 148 patients from the Department of Neurology, and 119 patients from the Department of Psychiatry. The overall positivity rate was 12.1% (59 of 489). Anti-cysticercus antibodies was detected in 14.9% of the blood donors and patients from the Department of Orthopedics, 11.5% of the patients from the Department of Neurology, and 7.6% of the patients from the Department of Psychiatry. Living in poor sanitary conditions seems to be an important factor related to human cysticercosis in Maputo, Mozambique.  (+info)

Training medical assistants for surgery. (5/362)

A successful programme is reported from Mozambique for training middle-level health workers to perform fairly advanced surgical procedures in remote areas where the services of consultants are virtually unobtainable. Manpower and financial constraints obliged Mozambique to train medical assistants to perform surgical work in rural areas, where three broad priorities were identified: pregnancy-related complications, trauma-related complications, and emergency inflammatory conditions. Since 1984, 20 health workers have emerged from three-year courses to become tecnicos de cirurgia (assistant medical officers), and it is expected that there will be 46 by 1999. The training comprises two years of lectures and practical sessions in the Maputo Central Hospital, and a practical internship lasting a year at a provincial hospital. Three workshops organized since 1989 suggest that the upgraded personnel are performing well. More detailed evaluation and follow-up are in progress. Throughout 1995 a follow-up was conducted on 14 assistant medical officers. They performed 10,258 surgical operations, some 70% of which were emergency interventions. Low rates of complication occurred and postoperative mortality amounted to 0.4% and 0.1% in emergency and elective interventions respectively.  (+info)

Managing external resources in Mozambique: building new aid relationships on shifting sands? (6/362)

The Mozambican health sector is recovering from war and general disruption. This massive endeavour is supported by several donor agencies, which contribute a substantial proportion of national health expenditure. The final years of the war and the transition period have seen an extreme fragmentation of the health sector. To correct it, serious efforts to coordinate the plethora of aid agencies and related external inputs have taken place. This paper reviews the actors present on the Mozambican health scene and their interactions. The existing aid management mechanisms are described and their effectiveness appraised. The factors affecting both the process and its outcomes are analyzed. Given the prevailing complexity, this research presents a number of tentative conclusions. First, the evidence suggests that coordination efforts have paid off. However, progress has required intense and sustained work. Incremental approaches, where donor demands are progressively raised as the system is strengthened, have been crucial. The initiative has come mainly from donors, with the Ministry of Health receptive and reactive. When the recipient administration has been able to take advantage of donor initiatives, success has ensued. Individual people have been crucial in shaping the process. Critical factors contributing to positive developments on both sides of the donor-recipient relationship have been frankness, risk-taking and a long-term perspective.  (+info)

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of vitamin A in Mozambican children hospitalized with nonmeasles acute lower respiratory tract infections. (7/362)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to test the potential of routine vitamin A supplementation at admission to speed up recovery during hospitalization for acute lower respiratory tract infections (ALRI) and to decrease the levels of morbidity at 6 weeks after discharge. The study was conducted in the Central Hospital of Maputo (CHM), Mozambique, from 1995 to 1997. METHODS: Children aged 6-72 months with ALRI admitted to the paediatric wards of the CHM were assigned to a supplementation group (n = 71, receiving 200000 IU of vitamin A) or a control group (n = 93, receiving a placebo). RESULTS: The prevalence of vitamin A deficiency was very high and similar between the two groups. The median number of inpatient days for the supplementation group was 3, for the placebo group 4 days. On day 5 the rate of clinical discharge was 88.4% (n = 61/69) in the experimental intervention group and 73.9% (n = 65/88) in the placebo group (P = 0.023). CONCLUSION We found a statistically significant reduction in duration of admission among vitamin A-supplemented children with ALRI. This effect is in line with what is known about the role of vitamin A in human defence and immune mechanisms and with the serological evidence of the extent of vitamin A deficiency among the children in this trial.  (+info)

ABSTRACT. The species composition and geographic distribution of ixodid ticks infesting domestic dogs owned by people in rural communities and villages in Maputo Province was established by collecting ticks from dogs at each of 27 localities spread throughout the province. Ticks were collected from a total of 132 dogs, and nine species belonging to four genera were identified. One dog was infested with six species, three with five and 13 with four species. Haemaphysalis elliptica followed by Rhipicephalus simus were present on dogs at most localities, and their geographic distribution in Maputo Province has been mapped for the first time..

The objective of this study was to measure white maize grain price transmission among markets in Mozambique and Malawi. Our analysis included two major deficit markets (Maputo in Southern Mozambique and Blantyre in Southern Malawi) and two major surplus markets (Chimoio in Central Mozambique and Nampula in Northern Mozambique). We used monthly wholesale white maize grain prices covering the period 2000 through 2016 to test for and quantify the magnitude of short- and long-run price transmission. To do so, we employed a combination of methodological approaches: Johansen cointegration test, Granger causality test and error correction model (ECM). Our findings revealed that Chimoio market has joint long-run relationship with Maputo, Nampula and Blantyre markets. All three Mozambique market pairs (Maputo and Chimoio; Maputo and Nampula; and Chimoio and Nampula) exhibited bidirectional causality in the long run. However, price changes in Maputo, Chimoio and Nampula are transmitted to Blantyre, but not the

As I wrote before, we organized a workshop in Maputo on the 6th of July, together with Unesco-IHE, Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) and Dunea, to present the Integrated Managed Aquifer Recharge Concept (IMARC). Since the 1950-ies Dunea applies Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) in the coastal dunes of the Netherlands, now providing 1.3 million people with high-quality drinking water. Duneas area of operation is around Scheveningen in the West of the country, close to The Hague. Dunea gradually added nature conservation and recreational use as a prototype IMARC - the protected dune areas around Scheveningen yearly receive one million recreational visitors. In the case of Mozambique, we see IMARC as a way of preventing saline intrusion, already a serious issue in some areas of Maputo, while protecting the environment.. For the workshop UEM provided a large and comfortable auditorium and logistic support. UEM also arranged simultaneous translation, which allowed the participants who did not ...
The Drug Resource Enhancement against AIDS and Malnutrition Program (DREAM) gathered professionals in the field of Elimination of HIV-Mother-To-Child Transmission (EMTCT) in Maputo in 2013 to discuss obstacles and solutions for the elimination of HIV vertical transmission in sub-Saharan Africa. During this workshop, the benefits of administrating combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) to HIV positive women from pregnancy throughout breastfeeding were reviewed. cART is capable of reducing vertical transmission to less than 5% at 24 months of age, as well as maternal mortality and infant mortality in both HIV infected and exposed populations to levels similar to those of uninfected individuals. The challenge for programs targeting eMTCT in developing countries is retention in care and treatment adherence. Both are intrinsically related to the model of care. The drop-out from eMTCT programs before cART initiation ranges from 33%-88% while retention rates at 18-24 months are less than 50%. Comprehensive

The border between Mozambique and Tanzania is formed by the River Rovuma. Daily pick-ups connect Moçimboa da Praia with Palma and Namiranga, the border post on the Mozambique side. The main route runs from Moçimboa da Praia (on the Mozambiquan side), via Palma (Mozambique), to Mtwara (on the Tanzanian side) and vice versa. It is recommended to take 2 days over this trip due to the low quality of the roads on the Mozambique side, and the low level of traffic. When coming from Tanzania, lifts depart from Mtwara and Kilambo to the Rovuma river. Kilambo is a small place with one road running through it, so lifts should be easy to find. Mtwara is much larger however, so ask the locals where and when lifts leave from. When coming from Mozambique, your lift to the river will normally start from either Palma (more likely), or - if youre lucky - Moçimboa da Praia and go to the border post at Namiranga. It will generally wait for you to have your passport stamped at the border post (a mud hut in ...

by Adriano. The electoral season in Mozambique is open. On October 10th we are going to have the fifth municipal elections in the country. This election will decide who are the new decision- makers and solvers of the various problems that affect the 53 large and small cities and towns of Mozambique. The debates held so far in the run up to the elections are more directed to conventional politics: the transfers of members from one party to another, the exclusion by the National Election Commission of three candidates from the opposition side, the anecdotes about temporary adversarial linkages that weave behind the scenes of parties.

Another area in which Beijings rising influence is clearly visible is in the provision of soft loans for major infrastructure projects. In 2006, China granted Mozambique a US$2.3 billion loan for the construction of a mega dam in Mphanda Nkuwu in central Mozambique. It was Mozambiques single biggest foreign loan to date and perhaps the one with the easiest repayment terms. China has expressed its interest in funding a further 10 medium to small dams throughout the country. Further loans were given earlier this year, including a US$60 million loan from Chinas state-owned Exibank and a preferential line of credited of US$240 million for infrastructure projects granted by the central government ...
Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranked 172nd out of 182 countries on the 2008/2009 UN Human Development Index. The country is prone to a wide range of natural hazards, which regularly cause major damage and disrupt economic growth.. The devastating floods of 2000, 2001, 2007 and 2008 and recurrent droughts in 2002/2003, 2004/2005, 2006/2007 and 2007/2008 are recent examples of this trend. Mozambique is regarded as one of the countries most at risk from climate change, which could increase both the frequency and severity of natural disasters..

The rapid trend towards urbanization in lower- and middle-income countries over the past half-century has significant implications for economic development, health, and the environment. There is an opportunity to understand how decentralized sanitation may affect environmental exposures and childrens health in dense, informal settlements of Sub-Saharan Africa, where pervasive contamination by fecal-associated microorganisms, including several pathogens, exists.. Led jointly by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology, this project aims to assess the impact of sanitation on a variety of health indicators such as incidence of diarrhea, soil-transmitted helminth infection, and anthropometric measurements, especially among children under five. Researchers from The Water Institute at UNC will design the MapSan Trial, a controlled before-and-after (CBA) study of shared sanitation in urban Maputo, Mozambique. The study evaluates a large-scale, shared ...
Special services within public hospitals are becoming increasingly common in low and middle income countries with the stated objective of providing higher comfort services to affluent customers and generating resources for under funded hospitals. In the present study expenditures, outputs and costs are analysed for the Maputo Central Hospital and its Special Clinic with the objective of identifying net resource flows between a system operating two-tier charging, and, ultimately, understanding whether public hospitals can somehow benefit from running Special Clinic operations. A combination of step-down and bottom-up costing strategies were used to calculate recurrent as well as capital expenses, apportion them to identified cost centres and link costs to selected output measures. The results show that cost differences between main hospital and clinic are marked and significant, with the Special Clinics cost per patient and cost per outpatient visit respectively over four times and over thirteen times

MAPUTO, Mozambique (CNN) -- Tropical depression Eline continued to move toward Mozambique on Sunday, bringing torrential rains and gusting winds to a nation already ravaged by its worst flooding in 30 years. The storm is expected to slam the central coast of this southeastern African nation late Sunday, according to the countrys National Meteorology Institute. Although the institute has downgraded the storm from a cyclone to a tropical depression, officials worry that the heavy rain and winds of up to 34 mph (55 km/h) could impede efforts to get help to stranded residents. Even airlifts -- which organizations are using to get supplies to people penned in by water-logged roads -- can be perilous.

Pine and eucalyptus planting companies are advancing on land belonging to peasant family communities in several provinces in northern Mozambique. This is a relatively recent process, encouraged by the Mozambique Government that sees monoculture tree plantations as a tool to promote development and progress in the more remote regions such as the province of Niassa.. The main incentives for monoculture tree plantations are focussed on this province. Niassa is the province farthest away from the capital city Maputo. It is the largest of the countrys ten provinces, the least populated and, what is very important for the companies, the province covers much flat and fertile land.. The companies have been granted concessions by the countrys central Government that allow approximately 250,000 hectares to be planted over a 50-year period. Presently five companies are working in the region with a total of 11,000 hectares of plantations and the forecast is to expand and cover approximately 100,000 ...
Cassava is the principal starch in Mozambique, at 30 percent of calories. It can be stored unharvested up to 30 months, but fresh cassava lasts only 3 days once harvested. Most processing in Mozambique is artisanal, to eliminate cyanogenic glycosides in the 90 percent of production from pest resistant bitter varieties. Only 6 percent of production in 2011 was used commercially for non-food, two-thirds for feed and one-third for starch. Low levels of productivity for cassava compared to elsewhere and poor transportation are the main barriers to the development of a processing industry. Unit costs of production range from USD 0.09 to USD 0.30 U.S. cents per kg. Producers would need to achieve 15 tons/hectare to be commercially viable, compared to average yields between 5 and 9 tons/hectare in Mozambique. Actions recommended include: adoption of a Master Plan ; time-limited subsidies for industrial High Quality Cassava Flour, ethanol, and starch; a network of service providers to operate in ...
In June 2017, Trickle Up conducted a Design Mission in Mozambique to train key staff members from UNHCR Mozambique and implementing partner Kulima on the Graduation Approach and to begin designing the Graduation components.

Mozambiques performance under the authorities program during the first three quarters of 2003 continued to be satisfactory. The discussions focused on the macroeconomic policies for 2004-06 and the governments plans to address pending structural reforms to broaden and sustain growth and further reduce poverty. Discussions on structural issues concentrated on the authorities plans to remove a number of obstacles to private sector development. A strengthened monetary and exchange rate management will be essential in Mozambique, particularly in view of the high degree of dollarization.
In May, Shell revealed it has been in talks with Anadarko about acquiring a stake in its Mozambique fields, but had pulled back because the asking price was too high. Mr. Guebuza said Thursday that he wants Mozambiques first LNG exports to start shipping in 2018, an ambitious deadline in a country that has no established oil and gas industry and limited infrastructure. Shells floating LNG vessels produce, liquefy and transfer gas to tankers for export, removing the need for a costly and complex onshore terminal. The technology is being used on a project in Australia with a similar five-year development schedule and could be one solution for Mozambique, said Mr. Steenson. Shell took the decision to deploy a $10 billion floating LNG vessel on Australias Prelude field in 2011 and it is due to start operating late in 2016 or early in 2017, said Mr. Steenson. The Prelude vessel, the first of its kind in the world, will produce around 5.3 million tpy of LNG and condensate, he said. At present, the ...
Analyses of Hurricane Idais recent passage through Mozambique indicate a strong relationship between this devastating hurricane and extreme weather events. It is a dire warning that the problem of global warming must be resolved urgently. Unfortunately, that is not expected to happen. Governments of the most industrialized countries, pressured by their multinational corporations and financial institutions-such as the World Bank-are promoting so-called offset mechanisms in response to the ongoing destruction and environmental contamination.. One of the best-known offset mechanisms is REDD, which stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (1). Instead of reducing the carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of oil, gas and coal-which is the main case of global warming-this mechanism allows polluting industries to offset these emissions from their own countries in another place, for example in Mozambique.. The government of Mozambique is committed to the REDD ...

The Grande Hotel Beira was a luxury hotel in Beira, Mozambique. It was opened in 1954 and operated until 1963, when it was closed due to lack of guests. The building was used as a military base in the Mozambican Civil War, and it is currently home to over 3500 squatters. In 1932, the urban plan of Ponta Gêa was designed by the architect brothers Rebelo de Andrade, and the plan included a hotel with an Olympic swimming pool in a spot overlooking the Indian Ocean, the mouth of the Buzi River and the sea harbour of Beira. Architect José Porto of the Gabinete de Urbanização Colonial produced the original concept design for the hotel; and in 1953, the Companhia de Moçambique commissioned architect Fransico de Castro to develop the original design and the final detailing. At the time, the Companhia de Moçambique had the concession to exploit the area now known as the provinces of Manica and Sofala. When the concession ended in 1942, the Companhia still owned local businesses and continued to ...

We assessed whether the Xpert Ct value is associated with delayed TB diagnosis as a potential monitoring tool for TB control programme performance.Materials and MethodsThis analysis was nested in a prospective study under the routine TB surveillance procedures of the National TB Control Program in Manhica district, Maputo province, Mozambique. Presumptive TB patients were ...
Previous studies with the malaria vaccine RTS,S/AS02(A) in young children in a malaria endemic area of Mozambique have shown it to have a promising safety profile and to reduce the risk of Plasmodium falciparum infection and disease. In this study, we assessed the antibody responses to the P. falciparum and hepatitis B components of the RTS,S/AS02(A) vaccine over a 45 months surveillance period in a large phase IIb trial which included 2022 children aged 1-4 years at recruitment. The RTS,S/AS02(A) vaccine induced high anti-circumsporozoite antibody levels with at least 96% of children remaining seropositive during the entire follow-up period. IgG titers decayed over the first 6 months of follow-up to about 25% of the initial level, but still remained 30-fold higher until month 45 compared to controls. Children with higher levels of naturally acquired immunity at baseline, assessed by blood stage indirect fluorescent antibody test, had slightly higher anti-circumsporozoite levels, after adjusting ...
Beira - Roughly 160 International Organization for Migration (IOM) staff in central Mozambique are working to prepare local communities for the imminent arrival of Cyclone Eloise, which is currently packing winds of at least 150 km/h.
Although CBD of injectable contraceptives is no longer a novel idea in sub-Saharan Africa, the process of translating community-based health care policies into effective programs is not always straightforward. For example, policy makers in Mozambique were supportive of CBD, but there was limited country-specific experience and no country-level data to support the policy. Consequently, this study generated evidence to support CBD of DMPA in northern Mozambique and found that provision of injectable contraceptives by APEs and TBAs was feasible, safe, effective, and acceptable among women. Very few morbidities at the injection site and no deaths were reported. The study demonstrated that APEs and TBAs can improve contraceptive access and use in rural Mozambican communities; in fact, the majority of women in the study started using contraception for the first time during the study period, and satisfaction with community-based providers was high and improved over the entire study ...
The Mozambican Health Ministry told reporters on Monday that the new strains of the coronavirus that cause the Covid-19 respiratory disease, which are circulating in India and Brazil, have not yet been diagnosed in Mozambique.
The dynamics of rapid urbanisation and urban trends in the present neoliberal context, which arise from the production of space in the capitalist mode of production, are evident in the peripheries recently produced for and by low-income populations. This article examines these peripheries in representative southern African cities, with Maputo as the main case study, analysed in relation to Luanda and Johannesburg. Basing my argument on the overarching theory of the production of space, I seek to understand how the interventions undertaken by the state and low-income people, and the interrelationship between these two main agents and the urban morphology, vary according to the historical, political and socio-economic specificities of each country. I argue that in Maputo, more than in the other two cities, these specificities, expressed in the morphology of these peripheral areas, benefit some crucial aspects of the living and housing conditions of Maputos low-income population, which is the ...
The last section of deck of the bridge between Maputo and Catembe will be laid today, ahead of schedule by about three weeks, the Mozambican press reported. The assembly of the 57 metal modules on the bridges main deck took just 22 days, compared to an initial forecast was 45 days.. The deck, which will cover a 600-metre suspension span, is estimated to weigh more than 7,000 tones. Each module is 12 meters wide, 26 meters long and 3 meters thick.. The deck links the towers built over the bay, in Maputo and Catembe, which are 135 and 137 meters tall, respectively.. The metal cables that support the modules weigh about 2,000 tones each, and are over 1 kilometer long.. The company responsible for the work has given assurances that nothing will compromise the completion of the works in December, as scheduled in the initial phase of the project.. The bridge will be 3 kilometers long and its two access viaducts will be 2.3 kilometers long.. Construction of the bridge, by the China Road and Bridge ...
Abstract. After the report of an outbreak of dengue virus serotype 2 in 2014 in Nampula and Pemba cities, northern Mozambique, a surveillance system was established by the National Institute of Health. A study was performed during 2015-2016 to monitor the trend of the outbreak and confirm the circulating serotype of dengue virus (DENV). After the inclusion of consenting patients who met the case definition, samples from 192 patients were tested for the presence of nonstructural protein 1 antigen, and 60/192 (31%) samples were positive. Further analysis included DENV IgM antibodies, with 39 (20%) IgM positive cases. Reverse transcriptase (RT) PCR was performed for identification of the prevailing DENV serotype; 21/23 tested samples were DENV-2 positive, with DENV-2 present in both affected cities. When sequencing DENV, phenotype Cosmopolitan was identified. The surveillance indicates ongoing spread of DENV-2 in northern Mozambique 2 years after the first report of the outbreak.
At a time when the debate over resources and land worsens in Mozambique, more than 30 civil society organizations commit to the increment of joint actions and extending their articulation in the defence of natural resources and against the privatization of land.. Peasant movements, men and women, feminists, students, human rights activists, environmentalists, labour unionists and workers, fishermen and communities affected by the impacts of large investments, consider the land and natural resources issue, and its defence, to be crucial. These organizations will launch a nationwide campaign against the privatization of land, theft and looting of all natural resources in Mozambique.. The campaign comes in response to a popular demand to challenge the way the country is being conducted, from community to national government. This campaign will consist of various activities, including marches, popular education seminars on the right to land; civic education caravans of rural and urban population on ...
Weve learned with Idai that its a good strategy to allocate the rescue means before the cyclone... Augusto Maita, general director of INGC told AFP.. The province of Cabo Delgado, bordering Tanzania, is also dealing since 2017 with a wave of deadly violence attributed to a jihadist group that advocates the application of Islamic law.. Volunteers of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, who had assisted in cyclone Idai rescue efforts, said teams were already on alert.. We are concerned about the impact that this storm could have across the three countries, regional director for Africa for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFC), Dr Fatoumata Nafo-Traore said.. We are especially concerned about its possible impact in Mozambique where communities are still recovering from the devastation of Cyclone Idai, she said.. In Mozambique alone, Idai killed more than 600 people and affected 1.85 million, while over 340 died in Zimbabwe.. Typically cyclones occur in the ...

Nexus analysis identifies and explores the synergies and trade-offs between energy, food and water systems, considered as interdependent systems interacting with contextual drivers (e.g., climate change, poverty). The nexus is, thus, a valuable analytical and policy design supporting tool to address the widely discussed links between bioenergy, food and water. In fact, the Nexus provides a more integrative and broad approach in relation to the single isolated system approach that characterizes many bioenergy analysis and policies of the last decades. In particular, for the South of Mozambique, charcoal production, food insecurity and water scarcity have been related in separated studies and, thus, it would be expected that Nexus analysis has the potential to provide the basis for integrated policies and strategies focused on charcoal as a development factor. However, to date there is no Nexus analysis focused on charcoal in Mozambique, neither is there an assessment of the comprehensiveness and

TB Vaccine Enters Efficacy Stage A new tuberculosis vaccine has entered the efficacy stage of clinical trials for the first time in 80 years, Inter Press Service reports. The vaccine is being tested in Worcester, South Africa, and was developed by the South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative, with support of the Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation. Jerry Sadoff, president and CEO of Aeras, said, The vaccine has entered last stage of Phase-II, which means that the drug is not toxic and has been found to be effective. IPS writes, While the developers are optimistic about the outcome, lung health and TB experts are warning against being overly excited (Mannak, 8/3).

OBJECTIVE: Universal coverage with insecticide-treated bed nets is a cornerstone of modern malaria control. Mozambique has developed a novel bed net allocation strategy, where the number of bed nets allocated per household is calculated on the basis of household composition and assumptions about who sleeps with whom. We set out to evaluate the performance of the novel allocation strategy. METHODS: 1,994 households were visited during household surveys following two universal coverage bed net distribution campaigns in Sofala and Nampula Provinces in 2010-2013. Each sleeping space was observed for the presence of a bed net, and the sleeping patterns for each household were recorded. The observed coverage and efficiency were compared to a simulated coverage and efficiency had conventional allocation strategies been used. A composite indicator, the product of coverage and efficiency, was calculated. Observed sleeping patterns were compared with the sleeping pattern assumptions. RESULTS: In ...

Pregnant women constitute a promising sentinel group for continuous monitoring of malaria transmission. To identify antibody signatures of recent Plasmodium falciparum exposure during pregnancy, we dissected IgG responses against VAR2CSA, the parasite antigen that mediates placental sequestration. We used a multiplex peptide-based suspension array in 2,354 samples from pregnant women from Mozambique, Benin, Kenya, Gabon, Tanzania, and Spain. Two VAR2CSA peptides of limited polymorphism were immunogenic and targeted by IgG responses readily boosted during infection and with estimated half-lives of &lt;2 years. Seroprevalence against these peptides reflected declines and rebounds of transmission in southern Mozambique during 2004-2012, reduced exposure associated with use of preventive measures during pregnancy, and local clusters of transmission that were missed by detection of P. falciparum infections. These data suggest that VAR2CSA serology can provide a useful adjunct for the fine-scale

According to this study, the socio-demographic factors are related to the incidence of caesarean sections in Mozambique. The connection was found by carrying out cross tabulations, Pearson`s χ2- tests and logistic regression analyses. In 1994-1997 age group and parity were associated with incidence of caesarean sections when adjusted with all confounders. The older the mother was, the higher was the risk of a caesarean section. Women having their first child had caesarean section more often than women having at least their second or third child. People living in urban areas more likely receive a caesarean section than those in rural areas. In 1998-2003, in addition to age, parity and area of residence, the study found the wealth index to be the strongly associated socio-demographic factor for caesarean section. Caesarean sections were more common among women who-or whose partners-were highly educated. Socio-demographical factors, especially parity, have stronger association in incidence of ...

31 August 2012 - In early 2012, Trans African Concessions (TRAC), the company responsible for the operation and management of the N4 toll route between the Solomon Mahlangu (formerly Hans Strijdom) off-ramp in Pretoria (Tshwane) and the Port of Maputo in Mozambique, responded to country-wide road accident statistics by resolving to improve pedestrian safety along this route.. More than six months have passed since the inception of TRACs first Community Pedestrian Safety Pilot Project (CPSPP) where Aurecon was appointed to undertake the project design, management and community consultation services. Aurecon also provided funding towards the project implementation within the community as part of its corporate social responsibility initiative. Click here to read more about the project.. Through the collaboration between TRAC and Aurecon, this highly successful community pedestrian safety project recently reached the final stage of its three phase programme, explains Aurecon Project Manager, ...
Focal control of malaria vectors, a potentially cost-effective alternative to conventional control, requires a spatio-temporal understanding of the mosquitoes. Trapping of African malaria vectors has generally been limited to inside houses making distribution estimates dependent on the location of dwellings. The development of tent-traps to sample outdoor biting mosquitoes has enabled more independent estimates. Here we describe both temporal and spatial variation in mosquito movements in an irrigation project village in southern Mozambique. Six hundred and ninety-three tent-trap collections (525 of which were paired with light-trap collections), 552 exit collections and 391 collections of mosquitoes resting inside houses were undertaken from March 2005 to April 2006. Fifteen species of mosquito were collected (five exclusively as larvae). Mansonia africana was the most common finding, numbers being greatest away from the village. Only Anopheles funestus, An. tenebrosus and Culex ...
Mozambique-Insurgency Against Portugal, 1963-1975 CSC 1984 SUBJECT AREA History ABSTRACT Author: Westfall, William C., Jr., Major, United States Marine Corps Title: Mozambique - Insurgency Against Portugal, 1963-1975 Publisher: Marine Corps Command and Staff College Date: 1 April 1984 The object of this study is to review the insurgent movement in Mozambique from the perspective of why it occured, how it was conducted, and what caused the results. The study is divided into areas of historical background, colonial issues relevant to the insurgency, organization of the insurgent movement, conduct of the insurgency, and Portuguese counterinsurgent efforts. Mozambique is a strategically located, resource rich, African nation which remains embroiled in turmoil despite almost a decade of self-rule since achieving independence from Portugal. The global importance of the Horn of Africa and the continuing struggle between East and West to establish influence in that critical area necessitates a sound ...
There are 6[4] to 7[5] accepted races. C. a. chrysura (Swainson, 1837) occurs from Senegambia to western Uganda. It is quite green above, has streaked ear coverts and is smaller in size than either C. a. suahelica or C. a. abingoni, without overlap. The tropical race C. a. kavirondensis van Someren, 1926 is olive-green above and more broadly barred, with thinner streaking below. C. a. suahelica (Reichenow, 1902) which occurs from the Kilimanjaro region to northern Swaziland, is similar to the former but has a yellower toned upper parts. The nominate race is widespread in arid and mesic woodlands of southern Africa, and has denser throat streaking than C. a. suahelica. C. a. anderssoni (Roberts, 1936) occurs from southwestern Angola to northwestern South Africa. It has very dense throat and breast streaking, locally verging on solid black. C. a. constricta Clancey, 1965 which occurs from southern Mozambique to KwaZulu-Natal, is smaller than the nominate race, and has the upper part plumage ...

DAVOS - Em 2007, os EUA contraíram uma gripe económica grave, e altamente contagiosa. Oito anos depois, o país está finalmente a dar mostras de uma recuperação convincente. Tão convincente que, pela primeira vez em quase dez anos, a Reserva Federal dos EUA aumentou no mês passado a taxa de juro de base do país. O estado da Europa, porém, ainda é crítico. Não só não recuperou da gripe do período pós-2008 (assolado por múltiplas crises), com está agora à beira de uma pneumonia.. A melhor defesa contra os agentes patogénicos é um forte sistema imunitário. E é isso que actualmente faz falta à Europa, sob a forma de líderes políticos que ofereçam uma visão inspiradora e progressista aos seus cidadãos. Com níveis de descontentamento em relação à política não observados desde os tempos mais negros do continente na década de 1930, o risco de a Europa vir sucumbir às forças destrutivas do populismo afigura-se cada vez maior.. No entanto, ainda é muito cedo para ...

One year after independence, a brutal civil war broke out which ended only with the founding of a second republic in 1992 in the wake of the Rome General Peace Accords, signed between the government and RENAMO. Then followed two decades of structural adjustment policies imposed by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). Today, 40 years after independence, the revolutionary vision of the national liberation movement is in tatters and the Mozambican government is thoroughly dominated by a neoliberal ideology that relies narrowly on foreign investment for the development of all economic sectors, whether agriculture, infrastructure, fishing, tourism, resource extraction, health or education. ...

Discussion. The spatial distribution of water quality variables showed the pollution gradient differed amongst the sampling sites (return water dam , Flag Boshielo Dam , Luphephe-Nwanedi Dams), especially for trophic status variables (ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, orthophosphates and sulphates), turbidity, conductivity, TDS and metals (lead and aluminium). The Luphephe and Nwanedi tributaries flow through areas of natural grassland, interspersed with areas of subsistence cultivation. There is very little urbanisation; as a result, the waters are relatively uncontaminated. Results from this study were consistent with previous work describing the Luphephe-Nwanedi Dams as essentially unpolluted (Oberholster et al. 2009) and the Flag Boshielo Dam as impacted by a combination of mining and agricultural effluents (Ashton 2010; De Villiers & Mkwelo 2009). The results further demonstrate that the return water dam is a polluted site, with high levels of nutrients and metals.. Parasite communities at the ...
Arguably one of the most ambitious Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - and the one seeing the least progress - Maternal Health aims to reduce maternal mortality by three-quarters by 2015.. This requires a 5.5 percent reduction in maternal mortalities each year, which would be easily reachable if all births were attended to by skilled health workers, trained midwives, nurses or doctors. Yet currently, only 59 percent of births are professionally attended to in the developing world.. Poor, rural women are at the greatest risk. With long distances between home and a health-care facility, most women who experience complications during childbirth die before reaching help..

This species has been recorded from Zimbabwe and Mozambique north to Ethiopia and west to Nigeria. In central Africa, it is present in Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia and Cameroon, and it is expected in appropriate habitats in the other countries as well. In northeastern Africa, this species is known from Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. In southern Africa, this species is widespread mainly in Zimbabwe and Mozambique, with a localised distribution in Zambia. There are records from South Africa at Zeekoevlei, Cape Town in 1950 (Brinck 1955) but these are doubtful as the elevations and habitats do not match those recorded elsewhere in Africa (Samways 2006) and therefore, these records are not included in this assessment ...
It was not business as usual this morning at the Matola C Health Center. Clients had to wear a mask and, upon their arrival, stand in a queue, maintaining a distance of at least one meter apart. Carolina Justino, wearing a bright red smock and navy blue cap, stood at the head of the line, alongside a handwashing station. Her task was to make sure everyone entering the health center washed their hands properly with soap and running water for at least 40 seconds. She also made sure clients maintained a safe distance-keeping at least a meter or two apart-as they stepped inside the facility. Carolina is a cough officer, one of nearly 800 charged with identifying and tracking clients with symptoms of TB at health services across 10 provinces in Mozambique. But on this day, Carolina is also concerned with a new, highly infectious disease: COVID-19. With Mozambique, and the rest of the world, fighting this pandemic, health facilities and the community are taking extra precautions, guided by the ...
Findings of the perceptions study show four categories why literacy is important in the eyes of the participants: family life, increasing family income, participation in society and personal development.

sector scenario. Results indicate that GDP growth driven by maize and other cereal crops is more effective at reducing poverty than is growth driven by export crops. The table shows that a 1 percent increase in agricultural GDP led by maize causes the national poverty headcount rate to fall by 0.73 percent, whereas growth led by existing export crops, such as tea and sugarcane, causes the poverty rate to decline by only 0.29 percent. Cereals are also particularly effective at reducing poverty among Mozambiques poorest households, as refl ected by that subsectors enhanced elasticities for the depth and severity of poverty (the poverty gap and squared gap, respectively). This enhancement is driven by sorghum and millet, which are impor- tant crops for Mozambiques poorest households. Finally, new export crops, such as biofuels, have greater poverty-reducing potential per unit of growth than do existing export crops. The main reason for this result is that jatropha, which accounts for half of ...
Aquaculture in Mozambique represents an additional source of animal protein, contributing to food security, stimulating regional development, generating foreign income, creating new jobs and reducing pressure on wild stocks, particularly the shrimp stocks. Shrimp aquaculture currently represents a little more than 2.5 percent of the countrys total shrimp production. There is potential for further aquaculture development in Mozambique. The country is well positioned for shrimp farming and shrimp exports command a high price in Europe. Studies have shown there are 33 000 ha available for the short and medium term development of coastal aquaculture, free from conflicting uses and protected resources. The establishment of shrimp and fish farms is one of the Governments major plans. The country is bestowed with a large number of lakes such as Niassa (Lake Malawi), Chiuta, Chilwa, Amaramba and dams such as Cahora Bassa, Chicamba Real, Massingir, Corumana and Pequenos Libombos.
