The donation includes 13 mobile X-rays, 44 ultrasounds and 1,000 vacuum cleaners, medical equipment that will have a positive impact on Cuba´s health services.
José Ángel Portal, MINSAP Minister, thanked the Japanese government for the donation and pointed out that it is a sign of brotherhood and a path of solid diplomatic relations.
Mr. Portal recognized how significant the medical equipment and spare parts sent to 34 hospitals are to strengthen Anatomic Pathology, Imaging and Endoscopy.
Hirata Kenji, Japanese ambassador to Cuba, said these medical supplies are one more example of his country´s solidarity with the Cuban people.
The Japanese ambassador recalled that his country donated in 2018 equipment for digitalizing the imaging system to Cuba´s major hospitals, worth approximately $10 million.
Both nations, he stressed, agreed upon the significance of access to quality medical service, so such medical equipment, along with others already installed in the Cuban hospitals, will contribute to enhancing Cuba´s public health.
