Target 2008

a) Within the framework of institutional strengthening, organization and operation of the health sector, a number of activities were carried out including the installation and operationalization of the information system, which was based on acquiring computer equipment, hiring a consultant to design the system, and creating the tools for its operation. This action was financed by the Treasury and the PASS Project and has not yet been completed.

Steps were also taken to restructure the EFQS (Health Professionals Training School) with financing from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation through the Red Cross nursing school.

Eighty-three nurses were trained and 24 pharmacists, who were assigned to hospitals and health centers and stations.

The WHO continues to finance consulting activities in the area of institutional strengthening, namely for drafting national plans and policies in a variety of health sector areas.

b) Health promotion, protection and combating disease. Actions, funded by Taiwan, were taken to combat malaria with quite promising results. Anti-tuberculosis actions and implementation of the AIDS program were conducted with support from the Global Fund, PASS Project in Health, through awareness campaigns, in-home disinfection, use of treated mosquito nets, etc.

c) Improvement in the provision of health care throughout the country. Support was provided for the health districts through small-scale actions targeting improvements, supply of basic drugs, laboratory consumables, and reagents.

An important contribution to the provision of services was made under the Valle Flôr project financed by IPAD (the Portuguese development aid institute), which disseminated the health care services provided in all districts under the Health For All project.
