Big welcome for doctors from Cuba to improve health system

The Eastern Cape department of health yesterday received a much-needed boost to its primary health care services when it welcomed eight Cuban doctors to the province.

The doctors, who will be allocated to different hospitals around the province, were recruited to provide health services to rural and other disadvantaged communities.

The total number of doctors the department acquired as part of the exchange programme with Cuba, is 10. However, only eight arrived yesterday.
