Regional Directorate for Health

Dear visitor,


Welcome to another area dedicated to the health of the region.

Nowadays, health is a priority issue. Our physical and mental wellbeing contribute enormously towards enriching the population in various ways. A healthy population, in turn, helps create a high level of self-esteem for the region, leading to greater productivity and a better family environment.


Healthcare in the Autonomous Region of the Azores does not only include access to primary care through the healthcare services, and access to specialist care principally through hospitals. It also includes health education, whose mission is to promote and publicise measures that lead to a more effective use of the health service and encourage the community to become involved in the various objectives of healthcare policies within the region.


The Regional Directorate for Health (DRS), operating within the Regional Secretariat for Social Affairs (SRAS) in terms of coordinating, inspecting, studying and providing technical and regulatory support for the health sector, is therefore responsible for promoting this service.


In the digital age, it is up to the DRS to make use of all available resources to publicise its services and make them accessible to the general public. This portal is therefore an effective way of achieving these objectives.


Information placed here includes various types of support materials, whether institutional, general or functional, all linked to healthcare within the region. Ranging from forms which can be completed online to all kinds of news and events listings, this will be a dynamic space where users will find pages to come back to as well as pages likely to be of immediate use.


Your help will be very much appreciated in making this healthcare area even more complete. Therefore if you have any contributions to offer or any comments or suggestions to make, please contact us.

Regional Director for Health
Tiago Alexandre dos Santos Lopes
