Santo Antão: Local collection of samples for laboratory analysis is a gain for Health in Paul – delegate of Health

“We collect the samples that will be analyzed later in the laboratory at the João Morais regional hospital, in Ribeira Grande”, said Alexandre Alves explaining that it is a gain because people will not have to spend the time and money to go to Ribeira Grande to to make these medical exams.

The gain is even greater when the user is elderly or someone with reduced mobility who, with access to this service at the local level, get a better life.
