The head of state also said that work on the new infrastructure is expected to be carried out in the next two to three years, similar to what has happened with new hospitals in other provinces. “In a period of two to three years we will build the new general hospital in Malanje, which is promised, the first stone has been laid and the commitment remains”, stated João Lourenço.
The President explained that the current Malanje General Hospital faces serious challenges, with its structure in an advanced state of degradation, which makes it difficult to carry out in-depth interventions while patients are hospitalized.
Faced with this situation, it announced the construction of a new annex block, which will house essential facilities, such as the Emergency Bank, operating rooms, sterilization unit and a hospital oxygen production unit, pending the construction of the new hospital.
After the completion of the new hospital, the current Malanje General Hospital will undergo in-depth rehabilitation, so that the province will have two reference hospital units.
João Lourenço also highlighted the commitment to invest in primary and secondary health units across the province, including municipal hospitals and other health facilities.
On the same occasion, the President of the Republic stated that the Executive is committed to finalizing the process of desilting the Malanje River, which is already around 70 percent complete.
