Speaking at the end of the closing plenary session of the fifth legislative session of the IV Legislature of the National Assembly, which took place on Monday, the minister informed that the first steps will be taken with the implementation of less complicated procedures, such as the case of the kidney and bone marrow transplantation.
Cited by Jornal de Angola, the health minister informed that the Pediatric Hematological Institute will be the main reference for this type of procedure and added that conditions are being created: "We are creating the technical and human conditions to start the project".
He took the opportunity to also announce the start of treatments for the implementation of 'in vitro' fertilization, clarifying that they will also start with the "less complex" procedures: "In this type of procedure we will also start with the least complex, and then we will proceed with the fertilization 'in vitro'".
The official left the guarantee that in the first months of next year, the sector will have "many innovations". "In the first quarter of next year we will have many innovations in the health sector", she said, quoted by Jornal de Angola.
She classified the sector's balance in the National Assembly as positive, taking into account the 'green light' given to relevant diplomas, but it was not only there that the gains were verified. "It wasn't just in the National Assembly. Other legal diplomas were also approved by the Council of Ministers, which represent a gain, especially for the fulfillment of the National Development Plan", she said.
The head of the Health portfolio also highlighted other achievements of the sector in recent years, such as the reinforcement of human resources through public tenders, which resulted in the "qualification of more than 33,000 professionals", writes Jornal de Angola.
"We had significant gains in infrastructure, at all levels, from tertiary to secondary and primary, with infrastructure built, with funds from the Integrated Plan for Intervention in Municipalities", added Sílvia Lutucuta, quoted by Jornal de Angola.
