Brava: Doctor evaluates progress on the island and says the situation “is better” despite the need to “work even harder”

Nova Sintra, Jan 17 (Inforpress) – The doctor and health delegate of the island of Brava stressed today that his “greatest misfortune” in his three years as a doctor was the loss of a patient at the beginning of his arrival in the municipality.

In an interview with Inforpress on National Doctors’ Day, Hélder Pires also said that so far his biggest challenge in his career has been agreeing to work in the municipality of Brava, emphasising that when he arrived on the island there was a “fatality” – the loss of a patient while travelling to the island of Fogo.

“That misfortune was a shock that made me grow and made me learn to be a little stronger, of course nobody wanted this fatality to happen, I did my best, however, not everything depended on me and so we couldn’t avoid the worst,” he lamented, guaranteeing that now the process of transporting patients is “really safer”.

Hélder Pires emphasised that in his three years of practice he has already worked in the Fogo region and that he is currently in Brava, “a great challenge”, as the municipality’s health delegate.
