LATIN AMERICAN MEDICINE DAY: Medical professionals honored

medicina-4[1]This December 3, celebrated in Cuba as Latin American Medicine Day, provided an opportunity to recognize those who, with disinterested humility, “struggle every day for the lives of our people and in other sister countries,” in the words read by Dr. Luis Curbelo Alfonso, from a congratulatory message sent by the Ministry of Public Health to an event held at the National Oncology and Radiology Institute (INOR.)

“This is a day for reaffirmation and motivation, but also one of inescapable commitment to new tasks related to the implementation of the Social and Economic Policy Guidelines,” the message continued, “We are in the second stage of more profound changes in the sector, with the objective of continuing to perfect the reorganization, consolidation and regionalization of services; better controlling resources; and strengthening ethical values… while elevating the population’s health.”

Dr. Roberto Morales Ojeda, minister of Public Health stated to Granma, “It is precisely this dedication to the health of the people – in every neighborhood clinic, policlinic, hospital and social institution – which makes our system an international reference.”
