Tarrafal de Monte Trigo, Santo Antão, Mar 27 (Inforpress) – The infrastructure is known as one of the best, if not the best, Sanitary Post Station in the municipality of Porto Novo, according to several people from Tarrafal de Monte Trigo and, as they say, “even tourists like what they see”.
“We are pleased when people praise our health post”, local health official Jair Américo Pires said, adding that the facilities are “well arranged, well conserved and well maintained”.
The health station of Tarrafal de Monte Trigo is served by a nurse and a health worker who provide coverage to all the local population and also the people from the neighboring town of Monte Trigo who, if necessary, demand these services.
“When the people from Monte Trigo arrive for consultations or treatment they ask for priority in the service”, said Jair Pires, explaining that even other users, from Tarrafal, give them priority without complaining, considering that they must return in the boats brought them or they will have to look for accommodation and food in Tarrafal, with the difficulties this would create for people with limited resources.
