Angola: 2012 Marks Health Sector's History

Luanda — The year 2012 will remain in the history of the Health Sector in Angola for having recorded the most investment in the construction of new hospitals and rehabilitation of health centres and posts.

This was stated by the National Independent Union of Health Workers and Civil Servants, in its year end's message addressed to all professionals.

The Union congratulates all professionals belonging to National Health System, particularly in the public sector and the private subsystem and military, due to their performance during the 365 days of 2012.

Recognition went also to the increased focus on human resources, leading to the opening of new public tenders, as well as the entry into force of the new Nursing Career.

The strengthening of the union, at the level of the health sector, became more evident in 2012 with the setting up, on July 05, of Trade Union Concert Forum of the Health Sector, a platform that brings together all unions linked to the health sector.

Similarly, issues on biosafety, hygiene at work and health insurance against labour accidents should be on the agenda of the government for 2013.
