Luanda – The deputy governor of Luanda for Community Services, Adriano Mendes de Carvalho, said Friday in Luanda that the coming of 60 Cuban physicians is an added value to the health sector as it will help reduce death in the capital and other regions of the country.
Speaking to journalists at the end of the ceremony of presentation of 20 Cuban physicians, in high density suburb of Cazenga, the official said this is the result of Government investment in the sector.
