1978 the Ministry of Health (MoH) trained a cadre of Community Health Workers (CHWs), or Agentes Polivalentes Elementares (APEs); however, largely abandoned due to civil war, which ended in 1992.
While decreasing, the child mortality rate for under 5s is still high at 87 per 1,000 live-births.
62% of the population report problems with access to basic health services, particularly problematic in rural areas.
In March 2010, the MoH approved the revitalization of the programme, with a goal to train and deploy approximately 5,000 new CHWs over the course of five years.
Focus on malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea for children 2 to 59 months - the three biggest causes of child death for this age group.
Also classify and treat other illnesses, administer first aid, and classify and refer cases of malnutrition.
Save the Children currently supports 1100 APEs in 4 provinces.

Over a third of child deaths in Mozambique are linked to Malnutrition.
40% of children under the age of 5 in Mozambique are stunted.
Once a child reaches 5 years old the stunting is irreversible.
The biggest damage is done in the first 1000 days of an infants life.
The Nutrition programme works with pregnant mothers and infants up to 2 years old.
