One of the MCH technicians is now fully trained in the manufacturing artwith the aim of being the first national teacher in the near future.

CONTEXT AND SITUATION IN MOZAMBIQUE


According to data from the de  Mozambique United States (2019), the country  is one of the 10 poorest of the world. It is ranked 180 of 189 countries in the Human Development Index (IDH); the median life expectancy of its population is 60 years, it’s one of the countries with the worst living conditions on the planet. This is due to the war-time lasting more than twenty years, natural disasters, illnesses, high population growth, low agricultural productivity and an unequal wealth distribution. Its birth rate has been one of the highest in the world with an average of more than 5 children per mother (greater in rural areas) for more than three decades. The high sustained level of fertility reflects the inequality of gender, the low use of contraceptives, early marriages and maternity, and the lack of education, especially among women.
