Mozambique became a FP2020 commitment maker in 2012. Mozambique strives to increase the use of modern contraceptive methods by adolescents in secondary schools across the country. Since 2012, family planning users have almost doubled and modern contraceptive use among all women modern has increased from 16% to 32%. In addition, Mozambique has focused its efforts to ensure that 30% of all public health facilities use electronic stock management information systems to facilitate family planning distribution by 2020. Committed to fostering a rights-based approach in its FP programming and achieving UHC, the government employs several mechanisms to improve access to family planning: delivering FP services at health facility level; reaching remote and rural communities through a community health worker program; rolling out school-based FP services; adding FP services to its mobile maternal-child health brigade and providing family planning resources through digital health platforms.
Mozambique is committed to continuing to provide free integrated sexual reproductive health services and commodities in all health facilities, and to cover 5% (2012), 10% (2015) and 15% (2020) of contraceptives needs. Family planning information and services for the youth will be revitalized. Access to long acting and permanent methods will be increased from about 1% to 5% of women by 2015. Postpartum and post-abortion counseling on family planning and contraception will be expanded by training at least 500 health providers throughout the country by 2015. A public-private partnership to strengthen the distribution of contraceptives will increase the number of health facilities with at least three contraceptive methods from one-third to 50% by 2015.
Mozambique FP2020 Commitment Self-reporting Questionnaire 2014
After the London Summit on Family Planning in 2012, Mozambique planned the purchase of contraceptives via the Central de Medicamentos e Artigos Médicos for 2013, and covered 25 percent of the budget necessary for contraceptives. The Government of Mozambique is striving to establish new partnerships with the private sector and donors in the SRH/FP area. For this purpose and in collaboration with UNFPA, financing was received from the Government of the Netherlands in November 2013 to promote and offer SRH services using m-Health. Resources from the Government of Korea were mobilized to support the National Integrated Plan to reach the Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5, and the UK Department for International Development for community distribution of contraceptives.

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions.
