The aforementioned amount will be allocated to the provinces of Benguela, Cuanza Sul and Bié, said the person responsible, who – speaking at the end of a meeting with deputies from the fifth committee of the National Assembly, focused on matters linked to the economy and finance – also clarified that for the selection of these provinces took into account the health profile, mortality rate and mobility, infrastructure, among other aspects, writes Angop.

On the occasion, João Mpila, deputy, said that the Economy and Finance Committee will continue its work, especially with regard to supervision, in order to execute these financings.

"We will continue to monitor, because we know that when these projects are not fulfilled the percentage of unfulfilled responsibilities is exactly the percentage of the cut made, and that is not what we want", he said, quoted by Angop.

Remember that between 2022 and 2023, the country saw the number of deaths reduce from 12,000 to 9000. The same happened with tuberculosis, whose number fell from 1010 deaths in 2022 to 503 in 2023.
