Mozambique is one of the most severely affected countries by the HIV pandemic. The Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – Operational Centre Brussels (OCB) HIV project in Beira started in 2014 as a project for migrants and key populations (KPs).

In 2018, MSF introduced an AHD component in the Beira Central Hospital (BCH) and in two health centres (Munhava and to a lesser extent, Ponta Gea).

HIV/AIDS is still a widespread epidemic, where the DRC has an average adult HIV prevalence of 1.2%, with an HIV prevalence of 1.6% in Kinshasa. 
MSF OCB works to care for people living with HIV, with activities in Kinshasa since 1993. Since 2002, to address the problem of access to HIV services, MSF launched an HIV project at Kabinda Hospital, a referral hospital southwest of Kinshasa (AIDS project), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
In 2022, MSF commissioned a second evaluation of the decentralization component of the project, covering the period 2017 to 2022.
