According to minister Faustina Inglês de Almeida Alves, who spoke last Tuesday, in Luanda, during a video conference organised by the African Union, families will be supported according to their needs, which may include the creation of cooperatives or small associations, which facilitate income generation.

According to the minister, this vulnerable section of society is in the age group of 5 to 60 years old. Its insertion will first go through a general registration process, through the integrated social centres existing in the eighteen provinces of the country.

Faustina Alves said that the objective of this programme is to ensure that people placed in these centres do not return to the streets with the same needs, as well as to end some constraints that once existed, such as open-air markets and without the minimum conditions.

In addition to education and prevention measures against the new coronavirus, said the minister, the country will also seize the opportunity to increase the awareness of young women, regarding sexually transmitted diseases and others.

Accordingly, she called for the involvement of businesspersons, NGOs, churches, women's associations, residents' commissions and civil society in general, to achieve the intended objectives.

This action plan will be implemented in coordination with the other ministerial departments, provincial and municipal governments, as well as national and international social partners.

On the same day, minister Faustina Alves also attended another video conference, organized by African Portuguese Speaking Countries (PALOP), plus Portugal and East Timor, where she presented the Angolan experience in combating and preventing covid-19.
