Mozambique

In Mozambique, we collaborate with our consumers to develop and scale health products and services that transform access and quality, especially for sexual and reproductive health.

PSI Mozambique

315,000

Practice Areas
We Focus On

To generate catalytic models that can transform information, access and uptake of sexual and reproductive health services, PSI Mozambique builds client-centered demand creation and service delivery models to scale within PSI’s work—as well as inspire our partners and network members to replicate these models as needed. 

PSI Mozambique builds upon national commitment and momentum towards adolescent sexual and reproductive health solutions. We bring the consumer’s voice to the fore using nationally televised mini-series like “Aquele Papo,” or community-level dialogue with sexual partners, parents and community leaders. PSI aims to amplify the voices of those seeking information and service. 

PSI Mozambique manages the country’s leading condom brand, JEITO. JEITO is positioned as a fun, energetic brand that embodies world class marketing and quality standards. Through partnerships with national distributors, JEITO continues to be the most preferred and widely used and available condom in Mozambique.
