Title: Aids in Mozambique: shattering taboos
Location: Mozambique

In desperate need of drugs, 42-years-old Daniel is dying quietly, far from the glances of the world. Eleven months ago, he learned he was HIV positive, just like his wife Rosa and their youngest child, a 4-years-old daughter. After a decade of watching Africans dying because of the treatment's excessive cost, the competition of generic drugs in 2001 creates a considerable drop in prices, down to 300$ per year. For millions of patients like Daniel, however, the price of these drugs, which hold tremendous possibilities, remains too high: Mozambique average per capita income is 250$ a year.
