MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The government of Equatorial Guinea has built basic infrastructure in the country over the past 20 years such as social housing, roads, electricity, health and education facilities, and water accessibility, said Equatorial Guinea's Health Secretary of State, Maria del Carmen Andeme Ela.
Secretary of State Andeme Ela recently highlighted important actions the government has undertaken to improve social welfare for its citizens at the Equatorial Guinea Economic Forum, held at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C., on August 8.
She also said, "citizens have access to government sponsored vaccines and medicine to fight malaria and other diseases. We have worked to improve services for reproductive and child health including early detection of risk pregnancies, which has reduced infant mortality and maternal mortality."
The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has had support from development partners and due to the country's progressive economic growth, it has been able to provide free public health services.
As a next step to improve the social welfare of its citizens, the government is working to provide access to health services via a health card, update regulations in the pharmaceutical sector, and provide an extensive program of human resource development at all levels.
About Equatorial Guinea
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea (República de Guinea Ecuatorial) is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa, and one of the smallest nations on the continent. In the late-1990s, American companies helped discover the country's oil and natural gas resources, which only within the last five years began contributing to the global energy supply. Equatorial Guinea is now working to serve as a pillar of stability and security in its region of West Central Africa. The country hosted the 2011 Summit of the African Union.
