HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 5 (ACN) For Cuba, cooperation in health is essential, which, as we know, is not only with this sister nation, but also reaches the entire Caribbean region, said Jose Angel Portal Miranda, Cuban health minister, during his recent visit to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
 In statements to the press of the Presidency, the minister explained the significance of Cuban cooperation in health matters for the Caribbean, which currently amounts to 1,441 collaborators in 13 states.

Portal Miranda pointed out that to date, more than 3,000 professionals from different countries have been trained in Cuba, as part of the collaboration program that has been in place for several years, noting that 641 Caribbean students are currently studying in the country's universities of Medical Sciences.

The minister commented on the possibilities of expanding cooperation in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry, a subject they hope to discuss at the forthcoming Summit with the Caribbean Community.

He underscored that during the tour of the health institutions they have witnessed with the population the results of the work of the Cuban professionals along with the local doctors, in addition to recognizing the Modern Medical and Diagnostic Center in Georgetown.

The achievements shown here are the result of the high quality services provided by the collaborators to the Vincentian population, which is a source of pride for the Homeland, Portal Miranda affirmed.

The minister spoke of gratitude and respect in the context of the commemoration of the Latin American Medicine Day celebrated this December 3, while sending congratulations to the workers of the sector in Cuba and to those who are on mission abroad.
