The Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) will inaugurate next week (day 21), a manufacturer of antiretroviral drugs for AIDS treatment in Africa. After four years devoted to the stages of planning and construction, facilities in Maputo, Mozambique's capital, are ready. The plant will be capable of producing 21 types of medicines to fight disease.

According to Fiocruz, in a first step, the drugs will be sufficient to meet the needs of Mozambique, a country with the highest incidence of AIDS in the world - an infected in each group of three people. But in two years, production will be able to meet all sub-Saharan Africa.

The total investment in the design and construction was estimated at about $ 200 million. Brazil's government contributed half of this amount, approximately. There were also donations from private companies, Brazil's Vale as the multinational that operates in Africa in mining and rail transportation.

At the inauguration, which is scheduled for a Saturday, the Brazilian president Rousseff will be represented by vice-president, Michel Temer.
