Empowered communities using high quality health services


To improve the long-term well-being of communities,
through the implementation of health development programs

Established in 2006, Friends in Global Health (FGH) is a wholly-owned affiliate of Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) currently operating in Mozambique.

FGH serves as VUMC’s primary vehicle for program implementation in Mozambique. FGH and VUMC function as one team, with most of its technical expertise based in Zambézia Province, Mozambique. FGH has been registered with the Government of Mozambique for the implementation of HIV prevention, care and treatment and other health development programs for over 15 years. The FGH team works closely with Mozambique Ministry of Health officials at the national, provincial, district and health facility levels to implement sustainable models of community and facility-based services that cover, among other areas, the full spectrum of the HIV response.
