UNICEF Multimedia Mobile Units in Mozambique

MOZAMBIQUE - UNICEF, the UN agency which provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries has been working in the South-East African country of Mozambique for almost 40 years. One of the most pressing problems it is facing is the recent surge of HIV and AIDS. Official estimates for 2011 reported a prevalence of HIV in Mozambique of 11.5% of the population. Since 2012, more than 2.5 million people in remote locations have received HIV/AIDS education and health services through UNICEF's Multimedia Mobile Units. Since that time the prevalence of HIV has levelled off in the country. UNICEF also uses Mobile health services to reach out to children in rural Mozambique.
