The Plano Estratégico do Sector da Saúde (PESS) 2014-2019 (the Health Sector Strategic Plan), is the overall expression of the priorities, implementation approaches, and resource commitments for health of the government of the Republic of Mozambique (GRM). With support from the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), the Ministry of Health (MISAU) applied the OneHealth model to estimate the financial and health system resources need to implement the plan, and the likelihood of meeting key indicators in maternal and child health and HIV/AIDS related to the Millennium Development Goals. Detailed cost analysis was conducted for over 40 disease programs across primary and secondary health. Financial requirements for the overall human resources for health (HRH), logistics, health infrastructure, governance and leadership, and health information systems were also estimated. The report identifies potential constraints for the scale-up of services, such as inadequate human resources, and includes an HRH gap analysis. It also contains a review of the strategic planning process at MISAU, and recommendations for the institutionalization of the OneHealth approach.
The report is available in English and Portuguese.
