Accra, May 20 (Prensa Latina) Since the Cuban medical collaboration in Ghana started off back in 1983, we´ve ever received an unfavorable view about any doctor and I am proud of that, according to Dr. Hafez Adam Taher, director of External Cooperation at Ghana´s Health Ministry.
Dr. Taher, a doctor trained in Cuba, heaped praise on Cuban specialists´ professionalism levels serving at Ghanaian hospitals. “This is what makes me keep my head up, because I really know what you are currently doing at hospitals”.
Speaking at the commemorative ceremony held at the Cuban embassy in Accra for the 60th anniversary of Cuban medical collaboration around the globe, Dr. Taher informed they´re working on increasing the number of medical collaborators with the support of other Ghanaian institutions.
Dr. Taher thanked the Cuban government, embassy and the medical brigade for doctors´ 40-year work in Ghana, as well as the opportunity to train professionals in Cuba, a figure that currently amounts to nearly 300. The Cuban Ambassador to Ghana Anette Chao García stressed the significance of unity, continuing to serve despite difficulties, and that the collaboration also includes health technicians and the Labiofam Business Group with its antimalarial products.
Dr. Idael Cabrera Morales, on behalf of the medical brigade, reaffirmed the Cuban government and people commitment to fulfill the mission entrusted to them.
“Today is a day of gratitude for the opportunity we have had to be part of this great army of white coats that is making history in the five continents. The whole world knows the value and commitment of our professionals, and we are grateful for that,” Morales stated.
