Beginning in late 2013, the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project began to provide technical support for community-level improvement of elimination of mother-to-child transmission (EMTCT) services to the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Mozambique as part of the PEPFAR-funded Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS). The demonstration project, which took place in Bilene Macia District in Gaza Province, sought to contribute to EMTCT through increased community awareness, improved community-facility linkages, and increased access to services for pregnant women.

The percentage of women who had their first ANC visit at Licilo Health Center at ten to twenty weeks increased greatly between 2013 and 2014
