Antiretroviral therapy brings hope

The introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Mozambique has revived hope and helped mobilise society in the battle against HIV/AIDS, President Armando Guebuza said this week.

He was addressing a training course for medical staff organised by the Italian NGO, the Sant'Egidio Community, which is providing ART to 4,000 Mozambicans through 12 centres across the country.

"The fact that the Sant'Egidio Community has chosen Mozambique to serve as a model for implementing this programme in Africa demands a lot of commitment from us," Guebuza was quoted by the state news agency AIM as saying.
