Mozambique joined IHP+ in 2007. Mozambique has a strategic health plan for 2007-2012. In 2012 it completed a 5-10 year retrospective health sector review. A new plan is being developed. It is developing a roadmap for strengthening monitoring and evaluation of the national health plan, based on an assessment of the current M&E platform. The Ministry of Health and 18 development partners signed a country compact in 2008. Mozambique has also participated in both the 2nd and 3rd rounds of IHP+ Results. It has incorporated indicators used in the IHP+ Results process into the joint annual review framework. Currently, health sector reviews take place twice annually, in March and July.

The launch of the Mozambique Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for FY12-15 comes at a momentous period in the country's impressive post-conflict journey; one which many analysts suggest has propelled the nation to a unique point of inflection. The optimism that accompanied the previous CPS for FY08-11, after two decades of growth and poverty reduction, has been replaced by sober but purposeful deliberation over Mozambique's path to development. Since the end of the two-decade long civil war in 1992, Mozambique has had to play catch up with the rest of the world. Macroeconomic stability, structural reforms, and reconstruction drove post-conflict growth which has been sustained over the past decade by enclave mega-projects in mining and energy production. The CPS Completion Report (CR) identified the following lessons: (a) an appropriate program of analytic work to underpin Bank programs and projects is needed to inform public debate on key development issues, including the entry points for economic transformation; (b) the CPS should be a living document and updated and monitored at mid-term with updated monitoring indicators; (c) Bank lending instruments should be chosen and sequenced more strategically to address sectoral bottlenecks and implementation capacity constraints; and (d) staffing and management vacancies affected the overall program delivery and results, and should have been addressed more expeditiously

Country Strategy Paper for Mozambique (2008-2013) The response strategy chosen by the EC is to contribute to decreasing poverty from 54% in 2003 to 45% in 2009 and to promoting fast sustainable and broad-based growth. Additional activities will continue to support governance measures in favour of human rights justice anti-corruption the inclusion of non-state actors trade as well as Mozambique's health sector budget.
