CUBAN DOCTORS RETURN TO HAVANA FROM HAITI
Havana, December 2(RHC)-- The first contingent of Cuban doctors who
worked in Haiti for 11 months is back home. The group -- made up of
71 doctors, nurses and technical personnel -- arrived in Santiago de
Cuba on Wednesday.
The Cuban health personnel treated poor residents in areas severely
damaged by Hurricane Georges, which hit that Caribbean nation last
year. Thanks to a cooperation agreement, Cuban doctors and nurses
are working in several countries around the region, including
Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
The Cuban government established the Latin American School of
Medicine, where Central American and Caribbean students are
studying free-of-charge. After they graduate, the doctors will return
to their respective countries.
