The information was released Tuesday to Angop, by the provincial director of Health, Avantino Sebastião, when speaking about the situation in the province hospitals, noting that this number will be the minimum to fill the demand in the health units.

He pointed out that 211 general practitioners would not suffice to tackle health problems, but only helps to minimize the constant search for assistance in the city of Malanje, since the province has only 70 expatriate doctors and 71 national doctors, a figure which does not meet the requirements of humanized health services.

"Every day, throughout the province, more than 200 children and adults come to the health units, which presupposes that every doctor often has to attend 30 children and adults a day, which is exhausting, so the increase of doctors minimizes basic health situations," he stressed.
