For the president of the CMLP assembly, José Manuel Pavão, specialization is a statute that enshrines doctors to practice quality medicine and assistance, with due legal responsibility, considering their mobility in the Portuguese-speaking space to be "urgent".

In Luanda, on the sidelines of a CMLP meeting, promoted by the Order of Doctors of Angola, José Manuel Pavão pointed to the need for doctors from the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) to advance to specializations, aiming to address the needs of their respective countries.

And he gave an example with the case of Guinea-Bissau, which is struggling with a lack of specialist doctors, mentioning that there is a large movement of doctors looking for specialization in hospitals and countries and waiting months and years for answers.

According to the Portuguese doctor, retired and specialist in heart surgery, political decision-makers, especially the Ministries of Health at CPLP level, must organize themselves better to guarantee mobility and financing.

"And I think there is a political problem to solve here, which is funding for young doctors who aspire to (...) specialties, to serve their countries, which has been difficult to achieve", concluded José Manuel Pavão.

The president of the Order of Doctors of Angola, Elisa Gaspar, vice-president of the CMLP, also pointed out the training and specialization of doctors as one of the challenges, noting that "one of the struggles" constitutes greater exchange between CPLP professionals.
