For more general information about the battle against HIV in Mozambique, see the article “$2m targets HIV in Mozambique’s LGBT communities.”

Mozambique repealed its anti-LGBT law in 2015, but social stigma against sexual minorities remains strong, which often excludes LGBT people from health care. The application deadline for the grant is Jan. 31, 2017.

This is the announcement of the conference call:
