Since 1981, URC has worked in Mozambique to help the country make progress toward health-related goals. Beginning with the Primary Health Care Operations Research Project (PRICOR), a USAID-funded multi-country research initiative, URC’s non-profit affiliate, the Center for Human Services has worked to guide developing countries in strengthening their primary health care services.

URC has since become involved in numerous other projects in the country, including the Health Care Improvement Project, a global mechanism of the USAID to provide technical leadership and country assistance for the application of modern quality improvement methods.

Currently, URC is improving the health of all people—especially women, children and other vulnerable populations—in Africa by expanding basic health services (including family planning), strengthening national health systems and addressing global issues and special concerns, such as HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases.
