Angola: WHO donates 10 tons of medicine
The donation includes drugs such as anti-malaria, antibiotics, measles vaccines, vitamin A supplements and kits to help the work of traditional midwives.
At the delivery ceremony, the Portuguese Ambassador to Angola, Francisco Esteves, said this effort comes to complement the work that has been done towards ensuring medical assistance in the resettlement areas.
He added that the offer is a result of cooperation between Portugal and Angola in health field.
Thanking the gesture, the Angolan Deputy Health Minister, José Van-Dunem, said this move will help resolve situations registered in the resettlement areas, particularly amongst the most vulnerable population.
This support is an answer of the global appeal launched by the WHO this year, to assist the families in the country's resettlement zones, with a view to improve the living standards of the most needy people.
Attending the hand over ceremony were the Health Minister and the WHO Representative in Angola, respectively, Albertina Julia Hamukwaia and Michel Kouakou. (Source: ANGOP)
