CSO Coordination & Engagement

CSO Platform:

The Mozambican Civil Society Platform for Health (PLASOC-M) is the coalition of civil society engaging on the GFF. This work is carried out by a thematic subgroup on GFF, chaired by the Observatório do Cidadão para Saúde.


PLASOC-M has a governance document but it is not specific to their work on GFF.


Civil society is calling on:

  1. Transparency in use of resources for Covid and RMNCAH+N more broadly;
  2. Government to increase investments in the health sector and;
  3. Covid investments to not drown out investments in PHC;
  4. Government to prioritize resources for keeping health care providers safe, including by preventing harassment of community health workers by the police.

The renewal of the GFF funding is also a priority.
