Ten technicians who work in government institutions to combat AIDS in Mozambique are in Brazil for a training program that aims to improve the response to the epidemic in the African country.

In Brazil since March 11, the group has conducted guided tours to the municipal STD / AIDS in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, and Itanagar, on the coast of São Paulo, in addition to lectures in the state capital with the Center for Professional Reference and Training in STD / AIDS of the Ministry of Health, which organizes the exchange with financial support from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The intention of this partnership to strengthen international cooperation mainly the work of the Center for Combating AIDS in Mozambique's Gaza province, in southern Mozambique, the most affected by the epidemic.

For this, Brazilians have been to Gaza in January, Mozambicans are now in Brazil and a future visit, although no date set, Brazilian technicians return to Gaza to meet monitoring of planned actions

In this Wednesday, March 20, the group visited the headquarters of News Agency of AIDS, where they attended a lecture on the relationship of the media with the theme and the partnership between the two countries that led, in 2009, the creation of News Agency Response to AIDS in the Mozambican capital, Maputo. Participants praised the Brazilian press coverage on the issue and asked questions about the means of financing projects against AIDS in Brazil.

Claudia Cardoso Mutaquiha graduated in Medicine for three years and serves as general practitioners in Gaza. She said she is responsible for making the connection between health, government and civil society in the region. For her, unlike Brazil, where the HIV epidemic emerged and intensified in some populations of society in Mozambique has spread quickly because of the war, which officially ended in 1992.

The doctor explains that in an era of instability was impossible to think of anything else, besides protecting people from armed conflict.

The coordinator of the Provincial Nucleus to Fight HIV / AIDS in Gaza, Rogério Paulo Moreira, said he liked to know how their work is done in Vitória da Conquista. This inside the country and most resembles the Mozambican provinces, justified.

For him, another factor was interesting to see that the Brazilian leaders participate in campaigns against AIDS. We want to bring these options to our leaders immediately also says Rogério.
