Paulo H. N. M. Pires, Marega Abdoulaye, José Miguel Craegh


Background and objective: the HIV epidemic in Mozambique is a public health problem. The Mozambican National Health Service expanded treatment with Antiretroviral therapy (ART) to all districts of the country in 2009. Unfortunately the expansion of ART was followed by a high rate of ART non-compliance thought to be due to inadequate food intake and difficulty accessing health centres due to transport and resource availability issues.
