The recommendation follows the IV National Meeting of Reflection on Quality of Nursing Assistance in Angola, which also recommended the creation within 90 days of a national commission to revise the legal status of the nursing career and adjust it to the country’s reality.

The holding of human resources national meeting to analyze the real number of nurses and their subsequent distribution all over the country, requalification of nursing services supervision and harmonization procedures, have also been discussed in the meeting.

The meeting also recommended the assessment of the degree of accomplishment of the National Plan of Health Development and projected future actions to be taken.

The Secretary of State of Health, Valentim Matias, who in the meeting was representing the incumbent minister, recognized the role played by nurses and stressed that they make up the most important group in patients’ assistance.

However, he urged a deep analysis to the training of nurses at the level of schools countrywide, requesting joint efforts to improve their education background so as to provide a better coverage of medical assistance to the citizens, mainly to children and pregnant women.


On his turn, the head of the Nurses Order, Paulo Luvualu, urged members to adopt a more humanized posture, responsibility and full commitment to providing good assistance to patients.
