Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP)

Program Overview

In Mozambique, Vanderbilt works in collaboration with a World Vision-led consortium to implement a USAID-funded five-year multi-sector grant, Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP). The consortium is locally known as Ogumaniha, which in Chuabo, one of the local languages, means “united for a common purpose”.

This program aims to improve the health and livelihood of children, women and families in Zambézia Province. To achieve this goal, the program focuses on:

  • Strengthening and increasing access to the health, nutrition and HIV & AIDS care system for target groups;
  • Promoting and financing demand-driven community investments for agricultural production through value chain additions;
  • Income-generation;
  • Water and sanitation; and
  • Building and reinforcing existing institutional capacity of governmental departments and community stakeholders.

Vanderbilt’s subsidiary Friends in Global Health leads the monitoring and evaluation component of the program, as well as provides technical assistance in the area of health and HIV & AIDS for the seven member consortium.
