Cuba, Algeria to strengthen medical collaboration

Havana, Feb 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Public Health Minister José Ángel Portal and Algeria's Health, Population and Hospital Reform Minister Abdelhak Saihi on Tuesday reaffirmed commitment to strengthen bilateral health collaboration.

During a meeting, Saihi, who heads the African country’s delegation to the 23rd Session of the Intergovernmental Commission and the Cuba-Algeria Bilateral Business Forum, claimed the bilateral cooperation can only be developed and strengthened in the future.

Portal, on the other hand, recalled coming May will mark 60 years of medical collaboration between the two nations, an important moment for Cuba´s international cooperation.

On this occasion, Portal stated, 55 medical collaborators arrived in Algeria, while as many as 7,000 health specialists are currently serving in that nation, “to which we are united by excellent political and brotherly relations,” Portal stated.

Health authorities called for expanding medical cooperation, joint research and scientific exchange between Algeria’s Pasteur Institute and the Pedro Kourí Institute of Tropical Medicine.
