Women at Centro de Salude

Women wait with their babies in the HIV ward of the Primeiro de Maio Centro de Saude in Maputo, Mozambique, one of the largest health facilities in the city. Parents of HIV positive children waited for hours at the clinic Monday to pick up more pediatric antiretroviral medication but were told to come back in a week because the clinic ran out of pills. Such problems with running out of stock are not unusual in Mozambique. Ray Suarez will have more on the problem in a reporter’s notebook Wednesday.

The NewsHour’s Global Health team is in Mozambique this week to shoot a series of reports that will air in November. Read an earlier report on food insecurity in Mozambique.
