positive, and reaching their 90-90-90 treatment targets by 2020.
Ending TB and AIDS epidemic will require to work with civil society organizations and individual citizens in a long-term effort. HIV and TB communities have much to offer each other by pooling resources. High rates of TB and HIV coinfection necessitate integrated approaches; this is crucial at the community level. People living with HIV should be an integral part of TB advocacy efforts.
In Mozambique there is a wide range set of interventions being implemented at community level for both, TB and HIV programs (e.g. DOTS program, index-case testing/contact tracing for HIV and TB patients in the community, key HIV prevention and adherence related messages, tracing of LTFU patients, etc.), but also there is a fragmented design and implementation of disease-specific activities.

C. The final report will synthetize information and data and provide practical and adapted recommendations to the situation found and context. A payment of 20% of fees will be done after delivery providing it contains all requested elements.
After review and improvement of the final report and its validation, a synthetic presentation to stakeholders will be conducted and the remaining payment of 20% will be made.
The total length of the consultancy is estimated at 90 work days and the initial draft final report must be submitted by end of August, in English or Portuguese (translation to the other language to be managed by EQUIP).
