The figure includes 19,418 from 122 countries of the world. Speaking at a ceremony marking the 50th anniversary of the Havana-based Institute of Basic and Preclinical Sciences, Cuban public health minister Dr Roberto Morales said that the training of those doctors rests on the efforts of a huge faculty that includes over 36,000 professors.At present the health ministry is involved in a process of necessary transformations aimed at making public health services more effective, efficient and sustainable, the minister said as cited by PL news agency.The changes imply reorganization and regionalization of health services with the appropriate use of the clinical method based on an epidemiological approach and the study of the social environment in assessing the people’s health problems.Morales stressed some health indicators in Cuba that compare to those in the so-called First World, such as the 78-year expectancy of life, the infant mortality rate now set at 4.5 per every 1,000 live births, and the maternal mortality indicator at 22.2 in every 100 live births. Cuban children are currently vaccinated against 13 different diseases, while all vaccines are produced in the country.Caribbean News Nowlast_img
