Mozambique: Brazil's Lula to Visit Mozambican Antiretroviral Plant
November 8, 2010
On Tuesday, Brazil's president will make a two-day state visit to Mozambique and tour a facility that will become the first public antiretroviral factory in Africa. President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva conceived of the ARV plant during a state visit to the African nation in 2003.
"President Lula will visit the site of the future [ARV] factory during his visit," said Leonardo Chavane, a spokesperson for Mozambique's health ministry. "The project is the product of a collaboration between Brazil and Mozambique." Mozambique, like Brazil, is a former Portuguese colony.
