Government reaffirms commitment to public health to overcome all challenges

Praia City, 19 Dec (Inforpress) – This Tuesday, the Government reinforced its commitment to the cause of public health, aiming to overcome all the challenges that lie ahead, while also considering that the last few years have been marked by “significant gains”.

The Assistant Secretary of State to the Minister of Health expressed this concern during his Christmas message to patients hospitalized at Agostinho Neto Hospital, considering it a special moment to bring relief to people who are away from their homes and family due to illness.

Evandro Monteiro said, however, that the Government is aware of the adversities that the country faces and that it works together with the population to progressively overcome this difficulty, convinced that steps will be taken so that the challenges in the current system, in this period of epidemiological transition, are resolved.

“We are now in an epidemic phase. These are situations associated with infections, but also the bulk of our current problems in Cabo Verde are chronic non-communicable diseases, the main challenges of which are highly complex, whether in terms of diagnosis or treatment itself, such as oncological or cardio-circulatory diseases,” he explained.
