Luanda — The dedication and commitment of the President José Eduardo dos Santos to improve the health and wellbeing of Angolans were lauded Monday in Luanda by the minister of Health, José Van-Dúnem.

The Cabinet minister stressed the president's effort at the opening of the 62nd session of the Regional Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to him, the choice of the Angolan capital, Luanda, to host the session is closely linked to the "builder of peace", political and economic stability of the country, in a clear allusion to the Angolan Head of State.

To this purpose, José Van-Dúnem conveyed a word of "deep gratitude" to President José Eduardo dos Santos, who have supported this event in Angola and his efforts centred on the health sector in the country and the African continent."
