The Mozambican Minister of Health, Nazira Vali Abdula, has met Cuba’s Ambassador Pavel Díaz Hernández for a review the status of the health projects being developed under the Cuba-Mozambique Collaboration Agreement.
During a fruitful meeting, both parties recognised the decisive role played in the development of the Mozambican public health system by the 257 Cuban doctors spread across the 11 provinces of a country with a complex geography seven times the size of Cuba.
The Minister of Health thanked the historic contribution made to the MISAU welfare and teaching programs by the doctors of the island, saying it had become a resource of inestimable value and a symbol of the best traditions of the unbreakable friendship between both countries and their people.
For his part, the Cuban ambassador emphasised Cuba’s willingness to continue advancing in the historic collaboration with the African country, reiterating his country’s willingness to evaluate new modalities of collaboration, such as exchanges of pre- and post-graduate students, sending patients on teatment, as well as the development of institutional initiatives in Mozambique, such as a diabetes treatment centre based on the Cuban experience. These issues were part of the broad bilateral agenda in the sector.
The Cuban Medical Brigade in Mozambique is the third largest in number in sub-Saharan Africa, and it covers more than 10 medical specialties in the country. Of this group, 67 percent have academic status and 44 percent scientific, a testament to their high professional profile.Source: Cuba MINREX
