Cossengue, Paulino Ricardo

In the face of COVID-19 pandemic, governments and businesses have struggled to operate and find ways to respond to the effects of the disease.  The present study conducts a research to find the right strategies for local businesses to cope and mitigate the damages upon National Health Service and business system as the virus spreads across the country. Methodologically, by large this research is supported by qualitative perspectives, and to a less extend by quantitative which is used mostly for statistical purposes. The literature review is the foundation upon which the discussion of secondary data is built, and in order to obtain solid findings the study adopts observation as the main technique to gather primary data. The results show that Angola can emerge successfully from the pandemic provided it manages to protect both the National Health Service and the business system. Most importantly, this study suggests heuristic technique to be the most appropriate tool to save the systems in question. In conclusion, despite not knowing what lies ahead, it sustains that global cooperation is the key to protect the entire world from the crisis but domestically countries must pay attention to both National Health Services and local businesses. In terms of structure, the research includes an introduction, literature review, a reflection on the Angolan context combined with the suggested technique or strategic model, and the conclusion.
