Havana, Nov 17.- Cuba will host an international health forum next April to address the transformations of public health systems and their impact on the world population.

The conference, which will be sponsored by international entities such as the World and Pan-American Health Organizations, will be attended by over 400 Cuban delegates and 500 guests from other nations. (RHC).
