The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) conducted a readiness assessment in Mozambique to see if would be possible and useful to conduct a costing study of post-GBV Care Services. Broadly the readiness assessment was designed to assess if there is a shared understanding about GBV and the need to scale up services. On a narrower level, the readiness assessment looked specifically at whether the data and information needed to apply HPP’s GBV Cost Calculator are available . The Calculator was initially developed and tested using the GBV management guidelines for the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare for the United Republic of Tanzania, which has invested heavily in standardized care protocols, training and data collection. The assessment highlights several important challenges to conducting a GBV costing study in Mozambique as well as some clear opportunities. The challenges include a lack of agreement about what constitutes GBV, a lack of protocols on what constitutes a GBV facility, and  a deficiency in national data collection protocols. The opportunities are reflected in a policy environment that offers a range of multisectoral and health sector policy documents and in the commitment by donors and the government of Mozambique to expand the quality and accessible of support for GBV survivors.
