OUR STORY

THE CREATION OF MANHIÇA FOUNDATION

The creation of the Foundation was one of the most important events in the development of the Centre because it entitled the CISM to a Mozambican legal framework, which facilitates its sustainability and long-term autonomy, while maintaining the commitment of the partners.

 

The Institute of Global Health of Barcelona (ISGlobal) joined in the patronage and in substitution of the Clinical Foundation for Biomedical Research.

THE CREATION OF THE CENTER

Since its creation, the Centre has grown within the framework of a bilateral cooperation programme between the Mozambican and Spanish governments and with support from the Hospital Clinic of the University of Barcelona (through the Clinical Foundation for Biomedical Research), to fight diseases and protect the health of vulnerable populations through research, healthcare and training.

As part of the strategy for integration and country ownership, the Foundation for Community Development (FDC) and Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM)
