January 25, 2010 |

HAVANA TIMES, Jan 25 — The Pan American Health Organization praised Cuba’s medical collaboration in Haiti during a visit by its director Mirta Roses to one of three hospitals in the capital where the Cuban doctors are attending the population, reported the local press on Monday.

Referring to Cuba’s longstanding medical aid program in Haiti, Roses said “since the Cubans were already in Haiti before the earthquake they have an advantage.”  Cuba has over 400 doctors and medical support staff in Haiti.

  • If a fraction of the international aid money spent to pull a few hundred people out of the ruble, had been used to develop a half decent health care system in Haiti thousands of lives would have been saved.
