November 10, 2003

After earlier in the week announcing that his nation will build a $23 million factory to make HIV drugs in Mozambique, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio da Silva pledged on Friday to help Namibia produce the drugs as well.

Silva and Namibian President Sam Nujoma signed a commitment to fight AIDS, poverty, hunger and underdevelopment.
