Angola: Health Professional Training Defended

Luanda — The director of the Military main hospital, José Cunha, defended that the health professional training for the use of diagnosis and therapeutic tools must be a priority to keep the efficiency and effectiveness in benefit of the patient, Angop has learnt.

Speaking at the opening of the activities of the diagnosis and therapeutics, he said the technical innovations have been contributing for the fall of mortality and morbidity rates all over the country.

"We cannot forget that our country depends a lot from the external technology making it more expensive for their acquisition, as well as the need for a greater planning and rationalization", he said.

José Cunha said that the new technologies in medicine are becoming a greater opportunity, placing Angola, a developing country, at the same level or even in advantage with regard to developed countries.
