Luanda – Angolan head of State João Lourenço announced Friday the construction as of 2022 of general hospitals in four provinces.

The health facilities will be erected in Caxito (Bengo), Ndalatando (Cuanza Norte), Sumbe (Cuanza Sul) and Cacuaco ( Luanda).

João Lourenço, who delivered the speech on the State of the Nation, in Parliament, said that these are actions aimed at increasing the supply of beds to meet the demand for health services by the population.

Each of these health units, according to the Head of State, will have at least 200 beds.

He also revealed that financial resources from credit lines are being mobilised for the construction of general hospitals in Catumbela (Benguela), Bailundo (Huambo), Dundo (Lunda Norte), Uíge and Malanje.

The programme, he said, also includes the rehabilitation and expansion of the Américo Boavida Hospital, in Luanda, and the completion of the Mbanza Kongo General Hospital (Zaire).

After the completion of the works, which could take place between 2023 and 2024, the perspective is to build smaller units, of proximity, in the primary health care network in municipalities and neighborhoods, to respond to population demand, according to the President.
