Mozambique has made remarkable progress in the fight against HIV in recent years—notably, increasing coverage of antiretroviral therapy (ART) from 14 percent in 2010 to 60 percent in 2019—but has fallen short of national targets. The HIV response in Mozambique has been heavily dependent on external funding; further scale-up of HIV interventions is likely to require an increase in domestic funding. To help mobilize additional government resources toward the HIV response, Mozambique’s National Council to Combat AIDS worked with HP+ to generate evidence on both the health and economic benefits of increasing investment. The resulting analysis estimated the impacts of five HIV investment scenarios from 2020 to 2030, finding that increased investment will not only save lives but also save money due to gains in productivity among people who avoid HIV infection and people living with HIV who initiate ART. This brief discusses these results and presents the case for mobilizing additional government resources.
