New Antiretrovirals Factory to Operate in Mozambique in 2013

August 25, 2011

Construction is underway in Mozambique on a new pharmaceutical factory that will manufacture antiretrovirals and other products, the Mozambican News Agency reported Wednesday. The facility is set for completion early next year, with manufacturing to begin in 2013, Jose Luis Telles, head of Brazil's Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, was quoted as saying. "The factory, which will employ 88 Mozambicans, will manufacture 20 different medicines for the treatment of a number of diseases, especially antiretroviral drugs," Telles said. Promoted by Brazil's former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, the project has been in planning since 2003, but Brazil's Senate only green-lighted it in 2009.
