Walking with AIDS - Cesar

First day in Mozambique with MSF to document operations in the fight against AIDS.

Cesar is 15 y.o. and doesn't have AIDS, call it luck if you will but instead, like many others in Africa, he has a bad TB (Tuberculosis) for which there are little international relief programmes. Without a proper treatment it will kill him all the same. This morning, Cesar will get a ticket and will walk his way to the hospital alone, with luck and money he may be treated there.

Today, pharmaceutical company Novartis is taking the Indian government to court in an effort to overturn the country's medicines act that was designed to bring drug prices down. If the company wins, millions of people across the globe could have their sources of affordable medicines dry up.

Dans les pas du SIDA - César

Premier jour avec MSF au Mozambique pour documenter le combat contre le SIDA.

César a 15 ans et n'a pas contracté le SIDA, c'est une chance penserez-vous mais comme beaucoup d'autres en Afrique il a la tuberculose contre laquelle il y a peu de mobilisation internationale. Sans un traitement adéquat ça le tuera tout autant que le SIDA. Ce matin Cesar recevra un ticket pour l'hopital. Après une longue marche et avec un peu d'argent et un peu de chance il y trouvera un traitement.

Aujourd'hui la compagnie pharmaceutique Novartis poursuit le gouvernement indien devant les tribunaux afin d'annuler la loi indienne sur les médicaments destinée à diminuer leur prix.

about the song - à propos de la chanson

The song you hear was recorded on location it is sung by the 40 volunteers of Lilongue district of Angonia who track down cases of AIDS, TB, Malaria, follow up on treated patients and report them to MSF. It is a song about strength and courage, how free medication saves lives and their pledge to help others.




La chanson a été enregistrée sur place durant mon séjour, elle est chantée par les 40 volontaires du centre msf à Lilongue en Angonia, ils sont le lien essentiel entre les patients des contrées rurales éloignées et le centre de soin. C'est une chanson sur le courage et la liberté, sur comment l'accès au soin sauve des vies, et sur leur promesse d'aider les autres.
