Angola: Physicians Association Engaged in Implementing National Health Policy

Luanda — The chairman of the Angolan Physicians Order (OMA), Alberto Pinto de Sousa, said Saturday, in Luanda, that the institution is committed to implementing the national health policy, enshrined in the sector's 2012/2017 programme.

Alberto Pinto de Sousa, who spoke during a congress of physicians in Angola, said that the dichotomy present and future, theme of the meeting, serves to guide the reflection on the current state of health in the country, as well as to enhance and defend vigorously the clinical governance.

According to Alberto Pinto de Sousa, this can also be understood as a dynamic and sustained evidence-based medicine management that can prevent tensions, loss of efficiency and effectiveness in the provision of care.

Finally, the head of OMA signed a public commitment to continuing to work towards the quality of health services provided to the population.
