It is the intention of the two nations to continue expanding cooperation links in health matters, said the Cuban minister, who assured of his country's willingness to continue supporting the training of human resources in the universities of Medical Sciences.

For his part, the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, who is on an official visit to Havana, thanked the Cuban health collaborators for the work they have been carrying out in his country for several years, and highlighted the support they provided to his people during the COVID-19 confrontation.
