The measure, which emerges following the strike last Monday by the Luanda Nurses  Union (SINTENFL), aims to fill the gaps left by nurses who have paralyzed health services, due to a lack of consensus between the professionals of the sector and the employer.

The two hundred nurses from the Angolan Armed Forces, who will reinforce the hospitals in Luanda, 55 soldiers will be distributed in Cazenga municipality, an act that will be attended by the provincial governor of Luanda, Adriano Mendes de Carvalho, aiming to encourage the Angolan Armed Forces.

According to a provincial government source, the strike covered a number of health centres and posts, and to resolve this situation, in a first phase 200 military nurses will be distributed and in the next phase it will be increased by another 300 military and police staff.

The source said that on Wednesday the two parties will be reunited again, to seek a consensus, since the various meetings already held have not bee successful.

Despite the health workers' strike, nurses of some hospitals such as Ngangula, General hospital of Luanda, Capalanga, Cajueiros, Neves Bendinha and Maianga, continue working normally, Angop learnt.
