CUBAN FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESPERSON’ STATEMENTS (Broadcast No. 3).

Good morning

I would like to greet those who are connected to the YouTube channel of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba to receive updated information about our country’s decision to discontinue its participation in the “More Doctors” program as well as further details about the return to Cuba of the health professionals who were working in Brazil or who are still in that nation.

Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba. November 28, 2018.

During the past few months, the US State Department has been concocting a new pretext to affect bilateral diplomatic relations, associated to the granting of the diplomatic and official visas required by the staff of the respective embassies in Washington and Havana to perform their duties. The maneuver consists in claiming that Cuba is hindering the granting of visas for designated officials at the US embassy in Cuba, which allegedly hinders the work of that diplomatic mission.

Declaration of the Ministry of Public Health of Cuba

The Ministry of Public Health of the Republic of Cuba, committed to the solidarity and humanistic principles that have guided Cuba’s medical cooperation for 55 years, has been participating in the Program More Doctors for Brazil since its inception in August 2013. This initiative launched by Dilma Rousseff, who was at that moment the president of the Federal Republic of Brazil, pursued the double purpose of guaranteeing medical assistance to the majority of the Brazilian people, following the principle of universal health coverage promoted by the World Health Organization.
