Angola: Kilamba Kiaxi Specialized Hospital Needs Thirty-Five Physicians

Luanda — The Kilamba Kiaxi infant/maternal hospital, in Luanda, needs thirty-five physicians and 20 nurses to cover the need and answer the demands, ANGOP learnt Thursday from the director of the institution, Renato Palma Chimbalanha.

In an interview to ANGOP, the official stated that the current pace of works calls for more medical personnel.

The unit has 19 physicians and 480 nurses, which is not enough to satisfy the demand of the population.

According to Renato Palma Chimbalanha, the humanization of health services should be coupled with a compatibility of health infrastructures and the existence of technicians able to serve patients with dignity.

The newly rehabilitated hospital has 30 beds and 40 cribs.
