Education & capacity building
Our goal is to ensure the Mozambique LNG Project brings with it an improved quality of life for local communities, Palma District, Cabo Delgado Province and the country more broadly.
Improving health and quality of life is a primary focus area for the project’s overall social investment strategy. We prioritize investing in programs that protect and promote the health of our workforce, as well as improve the health of the communities in our project area.
Our health-related social investment programs align with the Project’s Health Impact Assessment and Community Health Management and Monitoring Plan.
The Mozambique LNG Project and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention have implemented a health awareness campaign in the Palma District and the town of Mocímboa da Praia. The campaign’s main goal was to positively influence health-related behavior change related within these communities.
The health awareness campaign included behavior change messaging, and it provided contraception devices, HIV prevention counselling, testing services, and access to quality integrated services for both adults and youths.
From 2014 – 2019 the Mozambique LNG Project has also funded community health intervention programs in the Palma and Mocímboa da Praia districts, focusing on three health areas:
These programs, delivered through Pathfinder, have now been integrated in a broader community health program, as described in community health management.
Every year since 2014, the project has supported immunization campaigns that aim to prevent specific parasitic diseases from infecting communities in the Palma District. These immunization campaigns are organized by the District Health’s Gender and Social Welfare Department.
