Venezuelans favored by health agreement return from Cuba

Caracas, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) A group of 137 patients and accompanying people from Venezuela benefited by the Cuba-Venezuela Health Agreement returned to the country from Havana, on a humanitarian flight amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry reported today.

Before leaving, travelers thanked the Cuban authorities, the Bolivarian government and the Venezuelan embassy in Cuba for their humanitarian assistance during their stay on Cuba.

Likewise, they highlighted the benefits of free and high-quality treatment, while expressing their gratitude to President Nicolas Maduro for continuing the legacy of Commander Hugo Chavez (1954-2013).

Thanks to the strategic vision of Hugo Chavez and the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016), on October 30, 2000, the Comprehensive Cuba-Venezuela Cooperation Agreement was signed in Caracas, with the commitment to jointly draw up programs and cooperation projects in different areas.

Health sector is top priority in the agreed projects, such as Barrio Adentro Mission, the training program in Comprehensive Community Medicine, and also Milagro Mission, which brings services closer to the most humble communities.

Both nations are twinned by feelings of respect for the self-determination of peoples, as fundamental axis for the construction of a multicenter and pluripolar world.
