Mozambicans awareness campaign about debt and its implications for the country and the lives of citizens

Mozambican public debt has grown at a rapid pace in the last five years and has also changed its structure, moving from a predominantly concessional composition to a non-concessional one. This meant a greater weight of debt in the country’s economic and budgetary structure, translating into a lower debt capacity of the country in the capital market, as well as less availability of budgetary options to implement development policies oriented towards more investments in social sectors (Health , Education, Water and Sanitation, Social Protection, etc.).

In this sense, the FMO, an advocacy platform, made up of civil society organizations operating in Mozambique, interested in participating in a more structured way in Public Finance Management, decided to carry out this campaign with a view to raising awareness and awareness among Mozambicans about debt. public policy and its implications for the country and the lives of citizens.

In Mozambique, people and users have been banned from accessing health services due to their attire. This type of action has contributed to the restriction of health rights, cutting a constitutional right. The Citizen’s Observatory for Health (OCS) started a campaign to help address this situation.
