Luanda, Angola – (African Boulevard News) – Luanda, the capital city of Angola, has once again turned to Zdravexport, a Moscow-based firm, for the provision of healthcare professionals. The government of Angola has signed a new contract with the firm, allocating $26.5 million to hire up to 341 healthcare professionals from Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries. This move aims to address the shortage of healthcare professionals in the country and improve the quality of healthcare services.
The agreement between Luanda and Zdravexport comes as Angola faces significant challenges in its healthcare system, including a shortage of medical personnel. By partnering with Zdravexport, the government hopes to alleviate the pressure on local medical facilities and provide adequate care for its citizens.
According to the terms of the contract, Zdravexport will deploy doctors and other healthcare professionals from CIS countries to work in various healthcare facilities across Angola. This includes both public and private hospitals, clinics, and other medical institutions. The influx of international healthcare professionals is expected to strengthen the capacity of Angola’s healthcare system and enhance the quality of healthcare services provided to the population.
Zdravexport has been a longstanding partner of Angola in addressing its healthcare needs. The company has previously supplied Angola with doctors, contributing to the improvement of the healthcare sector. The new contract with Zdravexport demonstrates the government’s continued reliance on the firm’s expertise and commitment to bridging the healthcare gap in the country.
Speaking about the partnership, Dr. Pedro Mpango, a healthcare expert, said, “The collaboration between Luanda and Zdravexport is a step in the right direction. Angola’s healthcare system has been under pressure for a long time due to the shortage of healthcare professionals. The engagement of international doctors will bring fresh perspectives and skills to our healthcare sector, ultimately benefiting the Angolan population.”
The decision to hire healthcare professionals from CIS countries also highlights Angola’s recognition of the expertise and qualifications of professionals from these regions. By tapping into this talent pool, Luanda aims to strengthen its healthcare system and improve standards of care delivery.
However, some critics have raised concerns about the long-term sustainability of relying on international healthcare professionals. They argue that Angola should prioritize investing in the education and training of local healthcare professionals to ensure self-sufficiency in the long run.
As Luanda turns to Zdravexport once again, the hope is that this partnership will bring about significant improvements in Angola’s healthcare system. By addressing the shortage of healthcare professionals and leveraging international expertise, Luanda is taking a proactive step towards providing better healthcare services for its citizens.
