Back in 2003, Brazil’s and Mozambique’s presidents, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Joaquim Chissano, agreed to set up the first pharmaceutical factory in Mozambique, to be entirely owned by the national government. The project — widely known as the Brazil-Mozambican anti-retro-viral factory because of its commitment to produce AIDS drugs — still represents the single most expensive and eye-catching project of Brazil’s South-South cooperation programme in the health sector.
