The Mozambican government confronts formidable challenges in enhancing population health outcomes, primarily due to the burden of disease and insufficient allocation of resources to the health sector. At the same time, mining and natural gas firms operating in Cabo Delgado province also face obstacles in maintaining a productive workforce. This paper explores the potential for a public-private partnership between the Ministry of Health and the mining and natural gas firms operating in the province. The findings from this paper underscore the potential for more efficient utilization of the mining firms’ funds by aligning them with the government health system. By working together, the government and the mining company can leverage their respective strengths and address the issues of disease burden and resource constraints more effectively. This collaboration would not only enhance the well-being and productivity of the mining workforce but also contribute to the broader goal of achieving UHC for all Mozambicans.
