Angola: Health Minister Considers Year 2012 Positive

Luanda — The year 2012 was considered to be very positive for the health sector because it launched various means so that in the future they may be better and better.

This was said to Angop on Wednesday in Luanda by the Health Minister, José Van-Dúnem.

According to him, the year 2012 was positive despite some constraints as result of the international financial crisis.

José Van-Dúnem pointed out as example issues related to financing and combating big diseases that were highly supported by the Global Fund and it was affected by the international crisis situation.

In addition, the minister said that these situations were not very serious because the Angolan state had the capacity to overcome them according to its possibilities.
