President President rejects criticism and says there are 11,231 doctors with updated registration

The president of the Order of Doctors of Angola (ORMED) said this Monday that 11,231 doctors have updated registration and are able to participate in the process of renewing the institution's mandates, rejecting criticism that she attributes to a minority.


“We currently have 11,231 doctors registered. They are doctors with updated registration because there are many who still do not have their registration updated”, stated Elisa Gaspar, who has been accused by some doctors of maneuvers to remain in their position, recalling that the process of updating the institution's database has begun in 2019.

The president, who spoke at the opening of the Meeting of the Portuguese Language Medical Community (CMLP), in Luanda, later highlighted in statements to journalists that these more than 11,200 doctors with up-to-date status are now able to participate in the process of renewing their mandates. of the institution, without, however, advancing dates, and asked older doctors to come to the Order for their respective updates.

“Every day we have doctors, because doctors are being trained every day, there are registrations every day, now we would like older doctors to be able to come and update their data, but of course the insertion of new doctors will continue” ( in the database), he stressed.

The management of ORMED's chairmanship has been challenged by doctors who accuse it of illegalities, particularly in the institution's database, in order to remain in the position, whose mandate, these doctors claim, ended in March 2022.

Asked by Lusa whether the data updating process was aimed at renewing the Order's governing bodies, the doctor said yes, arguing “that without the database it is not possible to renew mandates”.

“Because any doctor who does not have their database updated will certainly not participate in the new election”, she said, without giving any dates.

Regarding the doctors who contest her management, Elisa Gaspar rejected the accusations, said that a “small group of doctors publish lies” about her and refused to answer questions.

“I’m not going to answer, because you’re also the people who tell you to come and make trouble”, accused the president, expressing discomfort in answering the questions posed on the sidelines of the meeting.

In her intervention at the beginning of the meeting, Elisa Gaspar, also vice-president of CMLP, a body of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), recalled that the order of doctors in Angola has four regional headquarters and assured that it carries out its action with complete independence in relation to the state, political and religious formations.

At the meeting, participants also celebrated the 5th of May, Lusophony and Portuguese Language Day, with a communication from the president of the CMLP assembly, José Manuel Pavão, who addressed the “Portuguese language as a vehicle for innovation and cooperation in health”.
